ESPN will pay to show Big East football games on television

Just name the conference after Teddy Bridgewater. He's who we're here to see, and by the time he's drafted there'll be all new teams in it and they'd be renaming it anyway.

React with mild enthusiasm in a manner of your choosing, brothers and sisters: The Big East/ESPN media rights deal is complete. Conference release:

Commissioner Michael Aresco has announced that the current Big East Conference, soon to be renamed and rebranded, has entered into a multiyear, wide-ranging television contract with ESPN to telecast its football, basketball and Olympic sports. Financial terms of the agreement were not announced. The contract will run through 2019-20. 

No news at this time on what will become of the Big East Pinterest account, so those of you planning USF football-themed weddings may want to consult your planners.
