College football realignment: ESPN, Big Ten part ways, per report

ESPN has been showing Big Ten games for over 40 years, but that partnership appears to have ended in the final stages of college football’s realignment.

The four-letter network has pulled out of its negotiations with the Big Ten, effectively ending the relationship between the two, reports SBJ’s John Ourand.

Sports Business Journal originally reported that the Big Ten had offered ESPN a seven-year deal worth $380 million a year as part of a new deal.
