Indiana comes in at No. 13 in 2022 list of total athletic revenue



In a story posted by USA Today Sports writer Steve Berkowitz, it was reported that Indiana athletics came in at No. 13 in 2022 list of total athletic revenue.

The Hoosiers finished in 5th out of the Big Ten.

It was also reported by Berkowitz that both the SEC and Big Ten each topped over $2 billion total in athletic department revenue. SEC led with $2.17 billion in total operating revenue while the Big Ten finished at $2.04 billion.

Berkowitz went into great detail about how dominant the SEC and Big Ten were:

“Each of those conferences has one private school, which makes for imperfect comparisons with the other Power Five conferences,” Berkowitz explained in his story at USA Today. “The Atlantic Coast Conference has six private schools among its 14 full members (Notre Dame plays football as an independent). The Big 12 and Pac-12 each have two private schools. And while the Pac-12’s private schools, USC and Stanford, likely are among its revenue leaders, Vanderbilt and Northwestern likely are — at best — at the mid-level of revenue within the SEC and Big Ten, respectively.”

Brett McMurphy, a College Football Insider for Action Network, released the full list on his Twitter account of the top 25 schools with the highest athletic revenue in 2022 (in millions).
