College Football’s Higher Prices,U.S. Open’s Shorter Skirts
The priciest college ball ticket averages $523

A newly released NCAA report shows that just 14 of the 120 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools made money from campus athletics in the 2009 fiscal year, down from 25 the year before. That’s certainly not college football’s fault, as the gridiron typically generates more revenue for athletic departments than any other sport. Sixty-eight FBS schools reported turning a profit on football, with a median value of $8.8 million, while the 52 FBS schools that lost money on football reported median losses of just $2.7 million.
