How will the new TV deal affect Bowl invites

Post by 89LaytonAg » January 30th, 2020, 12:43 pm

Since the new TV deal is with FOX and CBS but ESPN owns the bowls, what happens to conference bowl tie-ins when the current contracts expire. And was the sponsorship of a bowl(s) included by FOX or CBS in the new tv deal?

It will not be a problem, there is a near shortage of bowl eligible teams as it is,

Bowl games are negotiated separately from TV contracts. ESPN owns 80% of the bowl games. They will in no way be affected.

ESPN hasn't helped us out with bowl games. I doubt this will hurt their inaction.

Bowl contracts are negotiated separately from TV contracts. This past July the conference entered into a new bowl agreement that includes ESPN controlled bowls and non-ESPN bowls. That agreement runs through the 2025 season and includes the following bowls:

- New Los Angeles Bowl vs. Pac-12
- Potato Bowl vs. MAC
- New Mexico Bowl vs. C-USA
- Arizona Bowl vs. MAC
- Hawaii Bowl vs. AAC or C-USA
- ESPN owned bowl likely in Dallas Area

The conference is also eligible to put a team in a NY6 bowl and keeps its alternate spot in the Cheez-It bowl in Phoenix.

Those bowl tie-ins are atrocious.

I really hope they use your descriptor for the bowl name:

"ESPN owned bowl likely in Dallas Area"
