This arguably was one of the more eventful weekends of the fall sports calendar, and it produced some Nielsen ratings numbers of note in Houston – some good, some not so good.
Despite the Texans’ lopsided loss to the Rams, the game still did a 24.6 rating on KRIV (Channel 26), which means the average audience for the game represented almost a quarter of Houston’s 2.2 million TV households.

Ratings for Oklahoma-Texas elsewhere were 32.2 in Oklahoma City, 27.2 in Tulsa, 23.0 in Austin, 13.2 in Dallas-Fort Worth and 8.7 in San Antonio. Top markets for Aggies-Rebels were 13.9 in Birmingham, 12.1 in Memphis, 12.0 in Austin, 9.2 in San Antonio and 7.7 in New Orleans and D-FW.
