Pac 12 Championship: USC vs Utah

CBS Sports reported earlier this week that ESPN is considering dropping out of media deal negotiations with the Pac-12, following a more than year-long will they, or won’t they, saga.

From CBS Sports: “According to sources who have speculated on what a form a Pac-12 deal could find, the league’s Tier I content would likely be categorized as a minimum of two games a week for a rights-holder across a typical 14-week season. Those 28 games may be valued at approximately $200 million, an average of $7 million per game. It has been assumed that an approximate $300 million rights deal might be needed to keep some Pac-12 schools from jumping to the Big 12. If a Tier I deal is closed at that valuation, the league would need to seek at least $100 million for the estimated 47-50 remaining games in the Pac-12 inventory (based on the league remaining at 10 teams.)”

Of course, the chaos can be traced back to the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners opting to leave the Big 12 for the SEC – a move that was largely forced by market forces.
