Bowl games are all about TV ratings, and no team consistently boosts numbers like Florida State.
Ed Gunther of the National Championship Issue took the average rating for all bowl games played from 2002 through this past season and compared it to when a particular team played in a game. The Seminoles played in eight bowls, and the total boost to share points was 11.05.
Texas was second at 9.5, Notre Dame third at 8.27, Michigan fourth at 7.28 and Ohio State fifth at 7.05.
At the bottom of his list is Oklahoma, which totaled minus-12.49.
Ed also totaled the scores by conference and found that the Pacific 10 had a positive share of 13.2, besting the Big Ten, which was 8.
