Boise State football to get $1.1M from ESPN
Boise State University has reached a deal with ESPN that will give the school at least $1.1 million and up to $2.6 million more in bonuses for broadcasting most of its football games on the sports network.
The Idaho Business Review (http://bit.ly/1lvc1rr ) reports ESPN will show all but one of the Broncos' home games this fall, with a non-conference game against the University of Louisiana-Lafayette shown on the CBS Sports Network cable channel.
The Broncos get $300,000 for any home or Mountain West Conference game on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC. The university also gets $200,000 for any game played on Saturday.
If any of the Broncos' final three games are also picked up by one of ESPN's main networks, the university will get a bonus.
