Texas Agrees To Keep High School Sports Off Of The Longhorn Network, According To A Report

Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com is reporting that Texas has agreed to not air any content involving high school athletics for the next six years. The initial inclusion of high school sports within the Longhorn Network was a major point of contention among other Big 12 schools and was a big factor in Texas A&M's move to the SEC. 

The move was negotiated as Big 12 officials work to save the conference just as Missouri has announced that it is exploring its options in conference realignment. It remains to be seen whether this announcement will be enough to convince Missouri to remain a member of the Big 12. 

Missouri was originally looking for a commitment that would grant rights for the 13 years that are remaining on the conference's TV deal with Fox. Texas opted to give just a six year commitment as a compromise from talks that occurred over the weekend.
