The rich get richer

Forbes released its list of the top 20 most valuable college football teams on Wednesday.

For the fifth straight year, the Texas Longhorns come in at No. 1 on that list with a value of $139 million. Up $30 million from last season. While things like TV contracts and the Longhorn Network make Texas so valuable, according to Forbes ticket sales are still the biggest source of revenue. Texas collected $34.5 million in ticket sales.

The top 20 features 10 SEC teams,  five Big Ten teams, two Big 12 teams, two Pac-12 teams and Notre Dame. At the end of the article, Forbes says that Florida State and Clemson are both worth more $50 million and should be on the list next year after BCS appearances this year.
