BATON ROUGE - LSU's journey to New York proved to be worth the mileage both on the scoresheet and in terms of national exposure as the LSU-Syracuse game drew the highest rating of any game that aired on ESPN last week, according to the network.

On Saturday evening, the Tigers came up with a 34-24 win as sophomore Leonard Fournette led the way with yet another startingly spectacular running game. As LSU grinded out a total of 244 rushing yards over four quarters, 3.2 million television viewers were glued to their couches. LSU-Syracuse was the most viewed game on ESPN's streaming platform with an average minute audience of 72,000 people and 359,000 unique viewers.

LSUSports.net reports the Tiger-Orange game resulted in a 2% increase in television viewership (3,144,000 people) to the same 2014 window on the network.

LSU is back in action this coming Saturday as Eastern Michigan cruises into Death Valley for a 6 p.m. kickoff. The game is scheduled to air on ESPNU.
