In honor of the BCS National Championship Game, which I’m watching as I write this, here’s a rundown of the most valuable programs in college football:
- Notre Dame
- Ohio State
These ranking are based on the hypothetical sales price of each program based on revenue, expenses, and projected growth rates. Texas, which ranking #1, has an estimated value of a little over $760M.
As for the teams vying for the title, Notre Dame is valued at $597M (4th place) and Alabama is valued at $476M (8th place). Though, with the beating that Notre Dame is taking, the difference might be smaller by morning… 😉
