Northern Illinois University and WSCR (670-AM) The Score have reached agreement on a three-year extension for broadcast of the school's football and men's basketball games.
The 50,000-watt station, which also carries the Chicago White Sox, boasts a signal that can be carried in 38 states.
In addition to all Northern Illinois football games (except those which directly conflict with White Sox games), WSCR-AM will air 20 Huskie men's basketball games each year and will carry the school's weekly 30-minute athletics update show "NIU Live" on Thursday nights from August through March.
"We are excited about extending our partnership with NIU," said Mitch Rosen, Program Director for WSCR. "The relationship over the past four years has been extremely beneficial to both The Score and NIU."
