2012 NCAA Television Revenue By Conference
As we’ve done in 2011 and previous years, here’s an updated list for the 2012 NCAA television revenue by conference for the BCS conferences. Note that there will be additional changes once league specific networks (like Pac-12 Network) are generating more money. Other contracts are expected to be altered to reflect new membership additions such as ACC, SEC and Big 12. The Big East contract is next up for renewal. The value is expected to be much lower with the losses of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and WVU but will still increase due to inflated value within the industry for conference television contracts. The per school increase for the Big East will likely rise as well, even with the membership growing to 13 members.
Average Annual per School: $17.1 million
Notes: ACC also expected to take it’s own share, bringing the average per school annual payout to $16 million per year
Annual: $40 million
Average Annual per School: $3.18 million for football schools, $1.56 million for non-football schools
Notes: Big East is next conference up for renewal. Total is expected to be far below the $1.4 billion they turned down.
6 years, $145 million, Fox (B1G championship game through 2016)
Annual: $200 million
5 years, $35 million, CBS College Sports (through 2016)
5 years, $35 million, Fox (through 2016)
Annual: $14 million
Average Annual per School: $1.17 million
Notes: CUSA and the MWC are expected to form a football alliance in order to negotiate a single TV contract for that sport.
10 years, $120 million, CBS College Sports (through 2016)
Annual: $12 million
Average Annual per School: $1.33 million
Notes: losses and additions now have the MWC at 10 members with Hawaii as a football only member, will lower per school payout. The MWC ended their own channel, Mtn this year. CUSA and the MWC are expected to form a football alliance in order to negotiate a single TV contract for that sport.
Note that many of these figures are fluid due to issues such as conference specific networks and their revenue growth potential. Per school payouts wil vary as well due to specific conferences distribution processes and their own TV rights factored in.
