How The Big Ten’s New TV Deal Will Change College Football

The Big Ten just announced its new TV deal, which will be worth more than a billion dollars each year. That new contract will go into effect next year, and mean some massive changes for the Buckeyes, the league, and the sport of college football on the whole.

Kevin Noon of joins host Tom Orr to break down the big impacts the new deal will have.

  • Why is it a big deal to have FOX, CBS, and NBC all televising games every weekend?
  • What will it mean for the league to end its partnership with ABC and ESPN?
  • With some Big Ten games shifting to the streaming platform Peacock, will it be harder to watch some Buckeye games?
  • Why the Big Ten is doing away with divisions and what we do (and don’t) know about what’s next.
  • A massive change coming to the way the Big Ten schedules its league games, and why it’s long overdue.

  1. I love this deal, I have not had Cable for over 5 years. I have Hulu for TV shows, but I also have Peacock and Paramount+ those two together I pay $110 dollars a year which is fair. Peacock Live works great my son and I watch all the WWE events no problem . I know a lot of people don't like the idea of peacock but they have a lot of great movies and TV shows on top of the big ten content. I also agree with the part about the antenna my brother got me one for Christmas 10 years ago . I have watched a lot of great games for free and in HD .

    Also I could see a time where Fox CBS and NBC have doubleheaders down the line like NFL does switching each week who gets two big ten games .
