The Big Ten is rich. Really rich.
According to a Wednesday report from USA Today, the league had nearly $759 million in revenue for the 2018 fiscal year. That's the first year of the Big Ten's new TV deal kicking in, and that figure dwarfs the Big Ten's revenue from fiscal year 2017, which was $512.9 million.
No conference, according to the report, has ever made more. Not the SEC, which made $660 million in revenue for fiscal year 2018. Not the Big 12, which made $374 million for its 10-team league. (Texas has its own sweet side deals that helped break up the league, as you may recall.)
Nebraska, along with 11 other Big Ten schools with a full share, got north of $50 million in its Big Ten payout.
