New NBC College Football Poll Gives No. 1 Ranking To 'The Event'

NEW YORK—In its official college football poll for the week of Oct. 4, NBC Sports ranked its new prime-time thriller/suspense series The Event in the top spot over such traditional football powerhouses as Alabama, Florida, and recent popular favorite Boise State. "We respect Ohio State's offense, which is nearly but not quite as riveting as the action and stunning revelations of The Event," analyst Keith Arnold wrote on the NBC Sports website Monday. "And even though there are other top-notch programs out there, none of them matches the week-in, week-out quality of The Event. The Event, Mondays, 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 Central. The Event." Arnold went on to speculate that early Heisman favorites Denard Robinson of Michigan and Andrew Luck of Stanford, while explosive quarterbacks, were perhaps not quite as deserving of the award as the explosive new NBC series The Event.
