On Wednesday, the company announced a new multi-year deal with the Scottish Professional Football League, which reportedly signed a long-term deal with ESPN a year ago (which was apparently much shorter than what we were lead to believe at the time).

Three notable piece of information from the release: not every match will be included (each club has the ability to stream matches to fans), some matches will be cable-exclusive on CBS Sports Network, and a weekly highlights show is also included.

  Inside 'Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home's Famous Bus Scene and Leonard Nimoy's Real-Life Inspiration (Flashback) ET spoke with the late Nimoy about the inspiration behind 'The Voyage Home's funny bus moment. Also, ET breaks down an MCU connection.Speaking with ET upon The Voyage Home’s premiere in 1986, the late Leonard Nimoy, who died in 2015 at age 86, revealed the humor wasn’t happenstance. In fact, for his second outing as director and actor following Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, it was a mandate.

CBS Sports and Infront today announced a multi-year agreement for CBS Sports and Paramount+ to become the exclusive U.S. home of the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL). CBS Sports will present at least 85 matches annually through 2024-2025 from the cinch Premiership – the top division of the SPFL – as well as the second-division cinch Championship and the Premier Sports Cup.

Coverage begins on Saturday, July 31, with select matches throughout the deal streaming exclusively on Paramount+, ViacomCBS’ subscription streaming service, and others airing exclusively on CBS Sports Network. As part of the multi-platform deal, CBS Sports will feature every Old Firm match between Rangers and Celtic, as well as a weekly program with highlights from across the league.

While Phillips said Wednesday the ACC hasn't yet decided how it will handle potential schedule disruptions caused by COVID-19 this season, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey told reporters Monday that league doesn't intend to reschedule games and could make a school forfeit if it cannot field a squad for a scheduled contest due to absences and other issues linked with coronavirus cases.

The schedule begins this Saturday, July 31st with Rangers-Livingston and Heart of Midlothian-Celtic, both on Paramount+. Sunday’s match between Motherwell and Hibernian and Monday’s between Kilmarnock and Ayr United are also Paramount+ games, but Dundee United-Rangers the following Saturday morning will air on CBS Sports Network.

The Scottish PFL alone isn’t going to draw many eyeballs to Paramount+ and the CBS soccer coverage. However, it further bolsters a portfolio that already includes the UEFA Champions, Europa, and Conference Leagues, Italy’s Serie A, the NWSL, and the top leagues in both Brazil and Argentina. With the Premier League’s American rights up for grabs starting with the 2022-23 season, you’d have to imagine CBS would be a strong contender to snatch them away from NBC Sports.

White Sox activate slugger Eloy Jimenez from IL .
In a corresponding roster move, Chicago optioned infielder Jake Burger to Triple-A Charlotte. It's believed Jimenez will get most of his at-bats as Chicago's DH with rookie Andrew Vaughn patrolling left field. Over his first 177 career regular-season games, Jimenez crushed 45 home runs with 120 RBI, a .276 average and a .848 OPS. The White Sox enter Monday evening with a commanding nine-game lead over the second-place Indians in the American League Central standings, and it's rumored Cleveland could be a seller rather than a buyer this week.
