Most Valuable College Football Teams

Forbes.com has posted an interesting article on the value of College Football teams. In the article they rank the top 15 most valuable teams based on how much the program contributes in four categories: to their own university, their athletic department, their conference and the surrounding community. Notre Dame is #1 thanks to their exclusive NBC deal. Surprisingly, USC is not on the list because "the team’s profits were too low to contribute as much to their schools as did our 15 finalists." Because the list is shown through a pop-up with pictures I'm posting the list below.

Most Valuable College Football Teams

1. Notre Dame - $97 million
2. Texas - $88 million
3. Georgia - $84 million
4. Michigan - $81 million
5. Florida - $76 million
6. Ohio State - $71 million
7. Alabama - $70 million
8. Tennessee - $69 million
9. Oklahoma - $67 million
10. LSU - $66 million
10. Auburn - $66 million
12. Penn State - $63 million
13. South Carolina - $57 million
14. Texas A&M - $53 million
15. Wisconsin - $51 million
