Still wouldn't touch 1986:
there's something about the 80's.
Sports fandom at a high but limited TV choices.
1987 - Still Highest rated CFB game of all time - Fiesta Bowl (Penn St. vs. Miami)
1982 - Still Highest-rated NFL game according to Nielsen was Super Bowl XVI in 1982 (Niners vs. Bengals), which was watched in 49.1 percent of households (73 share).
