NFL telecasts swept the top four spots in the local TV ratings with OU and OSU both off last week. The Indianapolis Colts' 27-7 win over the San Francisco 49ers topped the week with a 12.3 rating on KWTV-9. The only college football game to break into the top five was Texas' 31-21 victory over Kansas State on KOCO-5. The Notre Dame-Michigan State game got a 6.3 rating on KFOR-4, more than double the Fighting Irish's usual rating here.
