TCU has agreed to a six-year deal with Fox Sports to broadcast the schools third tier rights.

The TCU Horned Frogs have agreed to a six-year deal with Fox Sports who will broadcast third tier rights for football, men's basketball and a various amount of other non-revenue sports. The financial details of the agreement were not disclosed, but the agreement will allow for many more TCU sporting events to be broadcast.

This deal was apparently in the works for months and the reach will mostly be regional to Texas and a few surrounding states. Here is part of the press release regarding the announcement:

The agreement features a comprehensive schedule of TCU athletics events to be televised annually, including one Horned Frog football game, all available men's basketball games and mutually agreed upon Olympic sports, including women's basketball, baseball, soccer and volleyball contests. The Horned Frogs' Sept. 8 home opener against Grambling State on FOX Sports Southwest officially kicked off the partnership.

This deal is also similar to one that Oklahoma and Texas Tech have signed with Fox Sports. Oklahoma State is also in the works of signing a similar deal.
