MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A judge has denied a motion by West Virginia Radio Corp. to reset West Virginia University's bidding process over a media rights contract for sporting events.

Judge Thomas Evans in Morgantown on Monday declined West Virginia Radio's bid for a preliminary injunction, citing the likelihood of significant financial harm to the university.

Evans also cited the public interest because WVU's football team plays its first game on Saturday. The university had argued it would be nearly impossible and very expensive to get a new media rights partner in time.

West Virginia Radio wants to stop WVU from finalizing a 12-year contract with North Carolina-based IMG College.

Earlier Monday, Evans rejected a request by the WVU board of governors, the WVU Foundation and other parties to dismiss the lawsuit.
