NEW YORK (AP) — Alabama's comeback win over Arkansas drew the highest television rating for a regular-season afternoon college football game on CBS in seven years.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide's 24-20 victory Saturday in a matchup of top-10 teams earned a 5.2 rating and 12 share. That's the best since a 5.7/13 on Nov. 29, 2003, for No. 9 Florida State at No. 11 Florida.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.
