ESPN Announces 12-Year Deal For Media Rights To Sugar Bowl
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.
