UGA No. 2 in football revenue, 13th in total sports income

The University of Georgia generated the second-highest revenue in college football and ranked in the top 15 overall in sports income, according to a report Monday in Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal.
SportsBusiness Journal, citing Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act forms, said UGA reported $67.05 million in football revenue in 2007-2008, second only to the University of Texas ($72.95 million).
UGA’s football revenues increased 12.7 percent. The Bulldogs’ pre-season No. 1 ranking likely aided in the record year for the program. UGA football was ranked No. 3 the previous season, generating $59.52 million in 2006-2007.
