Friday morning, the conference announced that it has distributed a total of $627.1 million in revenue to its 14 member institutions for the 2017-18 fiscal year, including $23 million in bowl money.
“The average amount distributed from the conference office, excluding bowl money retained by participants, was slightly over $43.1 million per school,” the conference’s release stated.
That $43.1 million figure tops the old league standard of $40.9 million each SEC school for the 2016-17 fiscal year. That number tops the $36.5 million the Big 12 announced for each of its members in June of this year, but falls well short of of the $51 million the BIG 10 schools will receive for the same fiscal year.
At the opposite end of the Power Five spectrum, and for the 2016-17 fiscal year, ACC members received between $25 and $31 million a nd Pac-12 schools received $31 million.
