The Big Ten Network will triple its prime-time national TV exposure during football season and add more basketball games in the time slot, thanks to new deals with broadcast partners FOX, ABC/ESPN and CBS. Those announcements were made at the start of the conference’s media days in Chicago on Monday. The FOX and ABC/ESPN football deals run for six years, as does the basketball agreement with CBS. The Big Ten Network also extended its joint venture with FOX through 2032. Conference officials said ratings for the network were up five percent last season, when more live events and studio hours were shown than ever before
