    Fox sports tv contract

    Dependent on expansion of course, but if it happens would be huge.

    Fox Sports Wants to Marry the Big 12

    Fox has engaged the Big 12 AD’s with a plan for massive expansion on the current Big 12 television contract

    Fox has proposed a nationally televised ‘Big 12 Game of the Week’
    The Big 12 would have to stay intact for the contract to be valid, with Nebraska a must-have (no word on Mizzou)
    The deal would probably include some sort of alliance with the Pac-10 for ‘made for TV’ match-ups (think USC-OU every few years, Texas-Oregon, etc.)
    This would effectively narrow the revenue gap between the Big 12 and the Big 10/SEC, making a Big 12 member team’s move to another conference not as attractive

    Ok, now I'm starting to wonder if the Whorns will pass this up? Sounds like they could have this and the Bevo Network.

    Re: Fox sports tv contract

    Fox has proposed extending the current TV contract for up to 20-30 years, possibly through 2050

    Re: Fox sports tv contract

    Doesn't Fox Sports already have a "Big 12 Game of the Week" that is televised nationally?

    I don't see the difference here.

    Is it currently national?

    Some years I have been able to watch more games in Pennsylvania than those in Iowa.

    National as in Fox Sports Net national or Fox national? That would be awesome the Big 12 had a deal with Fox (the actual channel) like the SEC has with CBS.

    Re: Fox sports tv contract

    Idk about that 20-30 years. While that may have some lasting effects on the conference, it also takes away from larger revenues later. Are there possibilities to renegotiate 10 to 15 years down the road? That could be a negative about this report.

    I'm pretty sure that the Saturday games are broadcast nationally on Fox Sports now.

    Re: Fox sports tv contract

    If this came before the big 12 meeting last week.. suddenly the obsession with keeping nebraska makes more sense.

    The talk of those 6 to the pac 10 occurs then because if this deal can't get done under the big 12 if NU leaves, its probably reasonable to assume Fox would be willing to look at something more like the big 10 network for that grouping.

    I would love to see an all day football on fox. What else does Fox have to air on a Saturday afternoon and evening. The start times could work themselves across the time zones if the PAC 10 is in on it.

    Then the games that don't make it on Fox national go to Fox Sports regional.
