New Centos 7 install- nvidia drivers - can't blacklist nouveau

Following this site to install my Nvidia drivers in Centos.

However when I try and blacklist the nouveau driver with the following
sudo echo 'blacklist nouveau' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
I get a permission denied.
Why? I am usiung sudo and logged in as admin.

If sudo is giving you problem, then login as root instead. Sudo is more of a hindrance to me.

Try just typing su hit Enter and than type in your password.
Than proceed to your task to blacklist.

I never set up sudo when I was running Centos 7.
