Published November 14, 2012
While there has been no official announcement on the Orange Bowl, sources say ESPN has reached an agreement to pay $55M per year for those rights. A formal announcement for the game could come in the next few weeks. ESPN also is reportedly close to a deal for the BCS playoffs for around $500M per year, which means ESPN will own college football's postseason for a total of $7.3B over 12 years.
