2011 Sugar Bowl ratings down from 2010

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - The Sugar Bowl's preliminary television

rating was down slightly from last year.

Ohio State's 31-26 win over Arkansas on Tuesday night on ESPN

earned an 8.4 overnight rating. Florida's 51-24 win over Cincinnati

drew an 8.7 on Jan. 1 on Fox a year ago.

The rating was 17 percent higher than last year's Iowa-Georgia

Tech Orange Bowl played on the equivalent Tuesday night.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions

tuned into a program. Overnight ratings measure the country's

largest markets.
