The Southeastern Conference will split $127 million among the 12 member schools in the revenue sharing plan for the current fiscal year.
The figure announced by the league Friday is the highest in SEC history and is $5 million more than last year. The fiscal year ends Aug. 31.
When you look at the specifics, football generated more than twice as much revenue for the conference than did basketball. It’s not just the regular season revenue that explains that, either. The SEC took in more money from bowl games than it did from March Madness.
