What will the Bayou Classic do, since they are on this channel?
The USA Network already carries the National Hockey League and NASCAR. The Bayou Classic has a decent tv rating and I am certain it will be carrried by the USA Network or other non-streaming platforms. The popularity of the BC, in its own right, not to mention the new appeal these days of all things Black, should make the ultimate Black college football experience of high appeal to various ESPN programming and other well known premium-content programming. I am sure the athletic administrations of the affected universities will soon collectively be all over this one.
Exactly. The fact that this is the final year of the agreement makes this somewhat tricky. I'm not overly concerned, but it is something to consider.The contract ended with NBC Sports this year. So the channel shutting down effects the Bayou Classic in no way.
