NEW YORK (AP) -The Bowl Championship Series says it is close to a deal with ESPN on the television rights to college football's championship game and biggest bowls.
The games are currently shown by over-the-air network Fox, and would be going to cable for the first time since the system was implemented in 1998.
``Currently, over 98 million homes receive ESPN,'' BCS coordinator John Swofford said in a statement. ``With the ever-changing technology and as we look toward January 2011, when the first games in this package will be played, we know that the number of households that receive ESPN will only continue to grow.''
Fox had a four-year, $320 million deal to broadcast the BCS games from 2007-10.
