"Record-low audience for Alabama-Ohio State"

"Monday’s Alabama-Ohio State College Football Playoff National Championship averaged a Nielsen-estimated 18.65 million viewers across the ESPN family of networks, easily the smallest audience for a national title game in the history of the CFP or its predecessor, the Bowl Championship Series. The previous low was 21.42 million for the 2005 USC-Oklahoma Orange Bowl."

It appears to me that either college football is going to need to get their act together on ways of increasing the competitiveness of college football (ie salary caps, restriction on coaches, etc) or it will become more and more irrelevant.
