ACC Gets New TV Deal With ESPN

The long wait appears to finally be over.   According to the Triangle Business Journal, ESPN out-bid Fox in close fashion.  Fox stepped up its game because it wanted to increase its internet-broadcasting efforts.  This move allowed the ACC to milk more money out of ESPN. 

$155 million between 13 teams (the league office gets an equal share for projects and operations) is about $12 million per year.  That's almost 3X what the teams were making under the old deal.  SEC schools get roughly $17 million each from their TV deals.  That's $ 5 Million more per SEC school per year, but the ACC closed the gap in somewhat major fashion.
