Big Ten Takes It to the Bank

Those who say the Big Ten is a weak conference fail to appreciate the conference's overall success in athletics as determined by revenue.

According to recent IRS filings, the Big Ten ranks first in revenue generated to share among its members at $154 million. The next closest conference is the ACC at $137.6 million, followed by the SEC at $135 million and the Big 12 at $103.1 million.

Although the Big Ten doesn't disclose the break-down of its revenue, it is widely known that the conference generates a large portion of revenue from lucrative television deals with major networks in addition to that generated by its own Big Ten Network.
