Big Ten projects to rake in $45M with new TV deal

The two Big Ten schools who won't bring in the full amount are the newest members, Maryland and Rutgers.
Like Nebraska, the new Big Ten members won't receive their full share until after spending six years in the Big Ten.
While the $44.5 million payoff is still four years away, don't worry, Big Ten schools won't go broke before then.
Nebraska doesn't get its full share until 2017-18 -- schools will pull in $27 million this year, $30.9 million in 2014-15, $34.1 million in 2015-16 and $35.5 million in 2016-17.
That extra game means more inventory to sell to potential rightsholders as well as more content for that wildly successful Big Ten Network.
