Action Network: Big Ten lands historic media rights deal; more expansion ahead?
$7-8B a year for 7 years. My very rudimentary arithmetic skills say that’s about $75M per school once USC/UCLA are on board. And that number still doesn’t include CFP/bowl, and NCAAT money.
FOX, NBC, CBS, FS1 and Peacock will all have a piece. BTN still has a lot of games too, obviously. All of those networks, except NBC, will show MBB. Terps fans will probably need to subscribe to Peacock after this coming season.
There are escalators that could take it to $10B for expansion, so that’s already spelled out. A source to the linked article says the Big Ten wants more West Coast teams.
CBS will only have 7 games in 2023 to accommodate their final season with the 3:30 SEC game.
