From SI.com:

New Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told CBSSports.com and other Big 12 beat writers in Waco that the conference’s new television deals with ESPN and Fox would likely be finalized and signed this week.

“I feel good about where we are right now,” Bowlsby said. “We released the first three weeks of the schedule so we’re sort of operating as if the contract is signed. There are no major pitfalls, we just have some things we need to put together — dotted I’s and crossed T’s. I’m hopeful we’ll get it done in the next few days.”

Bowlsby valued the combined contracts at $2.6 billion paid over 13 years – pumping a projected $200 million annually into the league through 2025.
