Big Ten announces new TV deals with FOX, ESPN and CBS
CHICAGO — The Big Ten Network will triple its prime-time national TV exposure during football season and add more basketball games in the time slot, thanks to new deals with broadcast partners FOX, ABC/ ESPN and CBS. Commissioner Jim Delany made the announcements at the kickoff of the conference media days event Monday. “College football has never been healthier. It’s also never been more fragile,’’ Delany said, citing major issues ranging from players safety and lawsuits to more minor conflicts like scheduling conflicts on Friday night with high school football games.
