NFL Network signs four-year Conference USA partnership

The NFL Network has signed its first partnership with a collegiate athletic conference, by agreeing to a four-year pact with Conference USA (C-USA). Terms of the deal were not announced.

The network will broadcast 10 of the conference’s Saturday games each season. C-USA games will also be available through the NFL app and via the Watch NFL Network on smartphones, tablets, PCs and connected TV devices.

The NFL Network has shown some college games in the past but has never had a partnership with a conference until now. C-USA also has a linear broadcast deal with CBS and digital-only deals with Stadium, Facebook and ESPN+.
