Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott looks like a genius. And the University of Utah has to be the most fortunate institution in the NCAA right now.
According to multiple sources, the Pacific 12 Conference is about to announce a 12-year, $3 billion television contract with Fox and ESPN. That's four times what the two companies have been paying.
Not only is that the most lucrative deal of any college conference in the country - more than the Big Ten, the SEC and everyone else - but what the Utes will be getting from this deal absolutely dwarfs what they got as members of the Mountain West Conference.
