Today, Steve Berkowitz, the wizard of numbers for USA Today, released revenue numbers of Division I public schools athletics spending and revenue.
Of 231 Division I programs, Texas A&M pulled in the most total revenue in 2014-2015 with $192,608,876. That marked an impressive increase of over $73 million for Aggie athletics from the previous fiscal year.
Other programs rounding out the top 15 include Texas, Ohio State, Michigan, Alabama, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Penn State, Auburn, Wisconsin, Florida State, Kentucky and Georgia.
In total, that’s eight SEC programs in the top 15 in total revenue generated, four Big Ten schools, two Big 12 programs, and one ACC school. Below is a closer look at the numbers.
Coppin State got the dubious honor of being at the bottom of the list with a total revenue just shy of $3.5 million
