LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas athletics department has agreed to a seven-year deal with ESPN to carry at least 70 live events on the ESPN3 platform, including regular-season football and men's and women's basketball games.

The agreement announced Tuesday comes on the heels of one with Time Warner Cable to air 50 Kansas games annually, including two exhibition and four non-conference men's basketball games exclusively on Metro Sports in the Kansas City market and across the state.

ESPN3 will deliver those same games nationally, while carrying at least 20 more games to the approximately 85 million homes nationwide that receive the service.

Among other events shown by ESPN3 will be Late Night in the Phog, the spring football game, the Kansas Relays and multiple volleyball, baseball, softball and women's soccer games.
