The Southeastern Conference wins again.

In the revenue race, six of the top 10 schools were from the SEC with Texas A&M ruling the ledgers with $194.3 million while posting $137,.1 million in total expenses.

Overall, the SEC had 11 of its schools finish among the Top 25 in revenue.

In comparison, the Big Ten had eight schools rank among that Top 25, led by Ohio State at No. 3 with $170.7 million and Michigan at No. 5 with $163.8 million.

Only six Top 25 spots were claimed by schools outside those two conferences with the Big 12 represented by Texas at No. 2 with $187.9 million and Oklahoma at No. 6  with $150.3 million. The ACC placed Florida State at No. 18 with $113.7 million and Louisville at No. 21 with $112.1 million, while the Pac-12’s Oregon came in at No. 23 with $111.7 million and Washington ranked No.  25 with $107.1 million.

Three of the Top 25 reported total expenses greater than their income during the fiscal year — Florida State ($1.8 million deficit); Iowa minus-$2.9 million) and Washington (minus-$2.4 million).

The latest NCAA revenue report covers the fiscal year from July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016, as reported by USA Today.
