IMG College has won the bid for West Virginia’s third-tier multimedia rights, a report in Street & Smith’s Sports Business Daily outlined.
Final approval is still pending.
West Virginia was one of few schools left in the country that managed its own rights in house with the Mountaineer Sports Network.
