Big Ten Schools Projected To Make $45 Million With New TV Deal

While it hasn’t had the most success on the field in recent years as its conference counterparts, there’s one area the Big Ten has been able to maintain its dominance: revenue.

According to a report in the Journal & Courier, the Big Ten projects that its revenues will continue to grow each year, and with a new television deal on the way, the conference expects 12 of its 14 schools to pull in approximately $44.5 million during the 2017-18 school year. That would be the first year of the new television deal.
