Kansas City Star: Forbes says Big Ten tops revenue list but Big 12 richest league per school (Raider Buzz blog)

The revenue generated by network television contracts, bowl games and the NCAA tournaments — income from deals struck by the conference — will amount to about $310 million.

The Pac-12 is second at $303 million, the ACC third at $293 million, followed by the SEC ($270 million) and Big 12 ($262 million).
