The Big Ten agrees to a deal with NBC, Fox, and CBS

On Thursday, the Big Ten conference reached new media rights deals with CBS Sports, NBC, and Fox, per release.

According to Joe Pompliano, the deals are worth a combined $7 billion+ over the next seven years.

“The Big Ten Conference media rights agreements are more than just dollars and deals,” Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said in the release. “They are a mechanism to provide stability and maximum exposure for our student-athletes, member institutions and partners during these uncertain times in collegiate athletics. We are very grateful to our world-class media partners for recognizing the strength of the Big Ten Conference brand and providing the incredible resources we need for our student-athletes to compete at the very highest levels, and to achieve their academic and athletics goals.”

During the college football season, the Big Ten’s games can be found on Fox at Noon ET, on CBS at 3:30 pm ET, and on NBC in primetime.

George Michalowski co-founded The Portal Report in 2022 with the goal of creating a media outlet completely focused on the transfer portal recruiting scene. In addition to his role with The Portal Report, Michalowski now works for Pittsburgh Sports Now as the site’s Pitt basketball beat writer and PrepHoops as a Pennsylvania high school basketball scout.
