How much is your football program worth?

Ohio State’s $32.3 million spending spree was $3.5 million more than the next closest school: Auburn at $28.8 million. Not surprisingly the nation’s top eight spenders – and yes, they all bring in nearly two to three times that much in revenue – are from the Big Ten and SEC.

After Ohio State and Auburn is Iowa ($26.9 million) of the Big Ten, followed by four SEC schools – Alabama ($26.44 million), Tennessee ($22.96 million), Florida ($22.86 million) and LSU ($22.74 million). The Big Ten’s Wisconsin ($22.71 million) ranks eighth.
