USA Today updated their database of athletic department financials for 2014. Who knows what kind of accounting shenanigans go on behind the scenes, so take the info with a grain of salt. For more on USA Today's methodology which involves open records requests, click here.

Texas A&M ranks 10th overall in Total Revenue with over $119 million, just shy of the all-time record in 2012. Texas A&M's expenses at $95 million were over $10 million greater than any prior year. Subtracting Total Expenses from Total Revenue, A&M shows nearly $24 million in profit. This ranks 4th among schools.
