The SEC is no longer the dominant power in college football, but it still remains a very important one.
We can only speculate on who will win it in 2021.
We have an even more interesting question: When does the SEC become the most valuable conference in college sports?
We put together a list of the five most valuable conferences in college athletics and ranked them based on their annual payout.
We also took into account the total value of the conference’s assets (including its television contract and the money it gets from ticket sales), which is calculated based on its total annual revenue.
The SEC and ACC, which are currently tied for second place, earned a combined $5.8 billion in annual revenue in 2021, with the Big 12 and Pac-12 tied for third with a combined value of $5 billion.
This gives the conference a combined annual revenue of $6.5 billion, which is $1.5 million higher than the Big Ten and Pac 12 combined.
But we’ll get to the Big 10 and Pac 10’s annual revenue later.
What’s the best conference in sports?
There’s no question the SEC is the best in the game right now.
The conference is the only SEC conference to have won the national championship in each of the past five seasons.
But while the SEC has been the most dominant conference in the college football world for the past decade, its dominance has been eclipsed by the Big East, which has a combined income of $4.7 billion.
The Big Ten, Pac-10, and ACC all made a combined profit of $1 billion in 2021 (which is $0.2 million higher) thanks to their TV deals, the amount of revenue they earn from ticket prices, and the revenue from selling merchandise and merchandising.
The Pac-15 also made a strong showing with $0 in profits, while the Big Eight made an impressive $0 million profit, with an operating loss of $3.3 million.
The only conference that did not make the list of most valuable was the Big Sky Conference, which made $1 million profit.
The Southland Conference made the most money, with a $2.5-million profit.
But the Conference USA made the biggest profit, making a total of $8.2-million.
The Conference USA is one of only three conferences in the country to have a profit margin over 1 percent.
The other two are the American Athletic Conference and the Big South Conference.
The AAC and Big Ten both had margins of less than 0.1 percent in 2021; the Big 8 had a margin of 0.2 percent.
Which conferences made the list most valuable in 2021?
The Big 12, the ACC, and Big East made up the top five in the yearly list of conference income.
The ACC earned the biggest total payout in the sport in 2021 with $7.9 billion, followed by the Pac-11, which earned $6 billion.
(The Big Ten made the next-highest amount of money in 2021 at $4 billion.)
The Big East earned the most in the year, earning $4 million in 2021 and $3 million in 2022.
(They also had a loss in 2021.)
The ConferenceUSA made the largest profit in 2021: $4-million, or $1-million more than the AAC and ACC.
The rest of the leagues made a net loss in that year, which includes the Southeastern Conference, Conference USA, Atlantic Coast Conference, and Mountain West Conference.
What is the average annual revenue at each conference?
We took a look at each program’s total revenue from tickets sold in 2021 to determine the average yearly income for each conference.
The NCAA’s annual distribution is based on total revenue divided by the number of home games played in each conference’s home conference territory, which ranges from 8,000 to 24,000.
For example, if a school plays 12 home games in a given year, it would earn an average of $0,500 per home game.
The College Football Playoff is based heavily on revenue and payout, so we only took a closer look at revenue per home football game in 2021 compared to 2020.
The average revenue per game for the SEC in 2021 was $2,907 per game.
(That was $1,852 less than the average revenue of the SEC during the 2020 season.)
The SEC also had the highest average ticket price in 2021 ($5.7 million).
The ACC, Big Ten (and Pac-9), and Big 12 all had ticket prices higher than $5,000 per game, while conference rivals the Big West had tickets in the range of $2 to $4,000 a game.
In total, the average ticket cost for a home game in the Big 11 was $6,979.
The total average ticket for a conference home game was $3,639.
The median ticket price was $
