The Longhorn Network will not show high school game highlights under an agreement approved by leaders of the Big 12, including Texas.

The NCAA has already banned school-affiliated networks from showing high school games, saying they would be an unfair recruiting advantage.

The Big 12 Board of Directors on Thursday banned the use of highlights from prep games, though scores, standings and game statistics will still be allowed if approved by the NCAA.

The Longhorn Network is a 20-year, $300 million venture between Texas and ESPN struck earlier this year.

The Big 12 also said that airing a second football game on the network requires approval by both schools and the league's television partners, Fox Sports and ABC/ESPN.
