SWC, RAYCOM EXTEND FOOTBALL PACT FOR '95 SEASON
Published February 15, 1995
The Southwest Conference and Raycom, Inc., have agreed to extend their syndicated TV agreement for the 1995 football season. The 10-game package will be offered by Liberty Sports and Prime Network to regional cable systems throughout the country to expand the viewership areas outside the traditional SWC markets. The agreement, in addition to the SWC's package with ABC and ESPN, will assure the conference of a four-year record of at least 79 telecasts (SWC). After the '95 season, the SWC will disband with its teams splitting between the Big 12 and the WAC.
