On Monday night, Sports Business Journal broke the news that the B1G will no longer be partnering with ESPN on media rights, shifting to FOX, CBS and NBC as media partners. The B1G is reminding everyone that things are not yet final. The conference released a statement on Tuesday:

The Big Ten Conference is currently working with world-class partners to complete multifaceted media rights agreements. The overall constructs of the new rights agreements have not been finalized. The conference continues to have productive meetings with both linear and direct to consumer media partners. We are committed to delivering unparalleled resources and exposure opportunities for Big Ten Conference member institutions, athletic programs, student-athletes, coaches and fans. We are very thankful for the media companies who recognize the value of Big Ten programming and want to deliver it to our fans around the world in a forward-thinking manner.

While it may not be official, that hasn’t stopped reports of the conference’s final offer to ESPN, speculation about the B1G/ACC Challenge and what a future football Saturday may look like on FOX, CBS and NBC.
