Forbes Ranks The 20 Most Valuable College Football Programs And Number One Is Destroying Everyone

When it comes to college football rankings, most people have something to argue about. Whether it’s someone saying an SEC team doesn’t deserve to be in the top 25, an Ohio State fan bragging about how their team is numero uno, or just your average joe playing Monday morning quarterback coach, everyone has an opinion. That’s the thing about most college football rankings — they are very subjective. But do you know what is objective? Money.

Ranking teams based on money is as subjective as it gets. No one can argue over whether or not a team should be higher because it’s based completely on facts. Unless we are dealing with a team who uses Ken Lay to make decisions over their books, these rankings will be right 100 percent of the time.

Thanks to Forbes, we can see which teams from 2015 are the most valuable.

Here they are:

20. USC – $66 million
19. Michigan State – $67 million
18. South Carolina – $69 million
17. Florida State – $70 million
16. Texas A&M – $71 million
15. Florida – $72 million
14. Oregon – $75 million
13. Washington – $78 million
12. Arkansas – $80 million
11. Penn State – $81 million
10. Auburn – $89 million
9. Oklahoma – $96 million
8. Alabama – $99 million
7. Ohio State – $100 million
6. Georgia – $102 million
5. Michigan – $105 million
4. LSU – $111 million
3. Tennessee – $121 million
2. Notre Dame – $127 million
1. Texas – $152 million

This is the 7th straight year that the Longhorns have been named as the most valuable football program in the country. In fact, their value increased significantly from last season, up 16% from $131M last year. The Longhorns also dominate in the revenue department, where they continue to be the only team in the nation to ever hit the $100M mark in revenue. Oh yeah, and this past year they had profits of around $92M. To put that in perspective, Alabama took in $97M in revenue.

Texas may not always win on the field, but they can always count on always winning this award.
