“We are delighted to be extending the historic and successful relationship that we have enjoyed with CBS Sports since 1983,” said Mike Aresco, Commissioner of the Big East. “This agreement further illustrates the excitement and anticipation that surround the re-invention of our Conference, and it will provide our fans across the country the opportunity to watch our games on network television.”
