    Bayou Classic Moves to NBC Sports



    .Bayou Classic Signs Extension with NBC Sports Group; New Kickoff Time for Annual Football Contest


    Posted on August 3, 2015 by Bayou Classic
    Bayou Classic and NBC work together to promote the importance of HBCU traditionsNEW ORLEANS – The Bayou Classic team announced today that the 42nd Annual Bayou Classic will once again be broadcast on NBC, but this year will move to the broadcast company’s cable network – NBC Sports Network. The agreement between The Bayou Classic and NBC Sports Group extends the broadcast of the Bayou Classic on NBC Sports Network for another year.

    NBC Sports Group has been the home of The Bayou Classic since 1991.

    “The landscape of television sports is changing and it is important to us that the Bayou Classic continue to be an integral part of that landscape,” said Dottie Belletto, President of New Orleans Convention Company, Inc. (NOCCI), the management firm of the 42nd Annual Bayou Classic. “Coming off one of Bayou Classic’s best and most dramatic seasons in decades, we could not be more proud to extend this historic partnership and are excited that this extension offers enhanced opportunities that allow us to bring Bayou Classic to fans on more platforms than ever before.”
    Also new for 2015, the kickoff time for the Annual Bayou Classic has been moved from its traditional 1:30 pm CST to a new kickoff time of 4:00 pm CST. This is also a change from earlier dissemination of a 2:00 pm CST kickoff.“This later kickoff time makes this the first time the Bayou Classic will see a prime-time matchup both in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and on broadcast,” added Belletto. “While our relationship with NBC Sports is longstanding, this new relationship opens up additional avenues to expand the breadth of Bayou Classic-related sports programming both in the game broadcast and in advance promotions and marketing efforts.”

    With all due respect to the Tigers and the Jags, this new arrangement moving to NBCSports cable network is a demotion.

    It is NOT NBC Sports and all its "free" affiliates.

    Of course, they may not have had a better offer and had to take it. Filling in that Thanksgiving weekend slot on the Notre Dame football lineup has been gold for GSU and SU. Not anymore.

    It was bad football to watch. I reckon the bands were okay if you like that sort of thing.

    Ít appears that at least 1 million viewers disagree.

    I'm assuming there's a point there. It might help if I actually knew who Karl Benson is.

    Uh, if they'd look up from their phone, they can watch the game live without that 45-second High Def transmission delay.

    Again.....I'm assuming there's a point there, I just seem to not get it. Do you care to elaborate?

    “This new agreement gives the Sun Belt a tremendous boost on our television coverage,” Benson said, “especially on the digital side with ESPN3 that becomes the wave of the future on how fans will watch college sports.”

    Um....okay. So what does that have to do with our agreement? The SWAC has had a contract with ESPN with includes live streaming and repeat broadcastimg on mobile device for a decade, and Southern has had the same with cox for even longer.

    Neither has nothing to do with NBC and the Bayou Classic.

    Statboy, you think the new agreement was driven (initiated) by NBCSports or the Bayou Classic promoters?

    More then likely. If anyone has been following what NBC has been doing, they know that NBCSPORTS was created to complete with ESPN.

    They did the same with the ND games.
