SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick says the coming Big Ten television contract with NBC is a "perfect" way for the network to complement its deal with the Fighting Irish.
Swarbrick held a live online chat for Notre Dame's alumni association Wednesday, during which he addressed recent developments with the Big Ten and how they could impact the school's ability to remain a football independent.
The Big Ten's new media rights deals are not yet finalized, but the conference is moving toward contracts with Fox, NBC and CBS. The league has also said it is having discussions with streaming services to televise its games.
