U Conn Gets Separate Television Football Deal
STORRS, Conn. (AP) - UConn has agreed to a multi-year television deal that will put most of its home football games on CBS Sports Network. The school did not disclose the financial terms of the four-year deal but said it is worth seven figures. Under the contract, the network will televise four UConn home games in 2020 and all home games from 2021-2023. This will be the Huskies' first season as a football independent since leaving the American Athletic Conference. Most of UConn’s sports teams will be playing in the Big East, which signed a 12-year, $500 million media deal with Fox in 2013.
