    The Pac-10 Conference has agreed to a media rights deal with ESPN and Fox that is worth more than $2.7B over 12 years, according to multiple sources. A formal announcement could come as soon as tomorrow. The deal, which averages out to more than $225M per year, includes football, basketball and Olympic sports rights. It is more than triple the conference's current deals with ESPN and Fox. The conference is holding some rights back that it still hopes to use for a dedicated channel.

    I'm not great with the new math, but $225 per year divided by 12 teams = $18.75 per team?

    (or $17.3 million if they give 1 share of the revenue to the conference, itself)

    no use in worrying about the numbers at the moment the situation seems too fluid.
