Ohio State and Nike previously had the largest apparel deal in college sports. The Buckeyes signed a 15-year extension with The Swoosh worth $252 million in January. Texas signed a 15-year deal with Nike worth $250 million in October and Michigan signed an 11-year deal with Nike worth $173.8 million.
Under Armour added Notre Dame a couple of years ago. The deal with the Fighting Irish is reportedly worth $90 million.
UCLA had been with adidas since 1999.
