Report: Big Ten Revenue Shares Increase To $32 Million Per School

The Big Ten is a pretty good place to be for a college athletics program. 

The conference is not only home to college football's defending national champion and college basketball's runner-up, but also a ton of money. 

As reported by the Lafayette Journal & Courier, Big Ten revenue shares increased nearly $5 million to $32 million per school for the 2014-15 year. 

From the report

The $32 million Purdue received from the Big Ten is about $5 million more compared to 2013-14. Revenue from the league's bowl games and the first year of the College Football Playoff provided the biggest increase, generating about $2 million more than the year before.

Not every Big Ten school received that much, as Nebraska, Maryland and Rutgers have to wait a couple years before getting their full revenue share. The Huskers will get it in 2018 while the Terps and the Scarlet Knights will get theirs in 2021.
