ESPN Responds to Bob Bowlsby’s Cease and Desist Letter

ESPN has responded to Bob Bowlsby’s cease and desist letter in what has become the next chapter in Oklahoma and Texas attempting to jump ship to the SEC and potential conference realignment fallout from the move.

ESPN denies having engaged in wrongful conduct detrimental to the Big 12, as the league’s commissioner alleged in a cease and desist letter Wednesday.
