ROSE BOWL EXTENDS DEAL WITH BCS, WILL HOST 2006 TITLE GAME
Published July 10, 2000
The Rose Bowl, which will host its first national championship game in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) in 2002, "has extended its agreement" with the BCS and will again host the title game in 2006, according to Frank Girardot of the L.A. DAILY NEWS. The contract extension is part of a $122M TV deal between the bowl and ABC, and the money will be "paid in installments" starting in 2002 and "split between" the Pac-10 and Big Ten conferences. The current package, "which guarantees about" $19M annually to the two conferences, expires in 2002. By extending their BCS contract with ABC, the Pac-10 and the Big Ten will get $20.5M from ABC for the 2002 game, $24M in 2003, $25M in 2004, $26M in 2005 and $27M in 2006 (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 7/8).
