Only seven of top 20 earners in college sports have men’s soccer
USA Today recently released a list of the top earners in college sports from 2014-15 and one commonality that most of the schools on the list share is that they don’t field a men’s soccer team.
In fact, out of the top 20 universities on the list, just seven of them – Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Wisconsin, Kentucky, South Carolina and Michigan State.
Fewer than half of the schools on the list of 231 field men’s soccer teams. Revenues range from $192 million for Texas A&M to $3.4 million for Coppin State. Ohio State is the highest earning school with a men’s soccer team at $167 million and third overall behind Texas and Texas A&M.
The list includes total revenues reported to the NCAA but does not break down revenue and expenses for individual sports.
