NBC Sports, Notre Dame Football Renew Pact

NBC Sports and Notre Dame have extended their TV rights agreement for football through 2015, a five-year extension, under which NBC will televise all Notre Dame home games.

Under the new deal, from 2011 through 2015, NBC will televise eight Notre Dame home football games, seven from Notre Dame Stadium and an eighth game at an off-site location that will air in prime time each year.

The NBC Sports-Notre Dame TV rights deal for football began in 1991.
