Money matters in college football

If you want to win in college football, then you have to spend.
Schools that spent the most money on their football teams enjoyed the most success on the field in a survey of area Division I programs and their conferences.
The biggest spenders may not always have won a championship in 2007 — the most recent year with spending figures provided by the U.S. Department of Education — but they were almost always in the top tier of their respective conferences.
