This weekend they’re home again, this time against Western Carolina, Saturday on a pay-per-view exclusive. With Heisman-hopeful Spencer Rattler under center, the university looks to capitalize on its talented program. Pay-per-view is just the latest avenue for schools to make more money in the collegiate sports landscape that has become more lucrative than ever.
What is College Football Pay-Per-View (PPV)
We are in an era where college athletes are now able to earn on their “name, image, and likeness” (NIL). Not about to miss out, universities are stepping into those waters themselves. This is the first season this writer has heard of with pay-per-views, and the Sooners are just one of the schools testing it out this season. The University of Hawaii has a six-game deal with Spectrum Sports on a pay-per-view package that covers three home games and three home games for $300.
A more successful program than the Rainbow Warriors, the Sooners have an opportunity to earn a lot of money from this pay-per-view. From the position of fans and sports bettors alike, due to the notoriety of the program, there should be a lot of interest in watching this game. As the TV schedules were being put together, however, the cable and over-the-air broadcasters apparently felt differently. They all opted not to air the matchup, thus opening the door for the pay-per-view route.
