Kentucky ranked fifth on the Collegiate Licensing Company's annual list of schools with the top-selling merchandise.
The list "represent(s) royalties reported July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013 on all collegiate merchandise sold"
Exact figures were not released, but the top 10 schools were:
3) Notre Dame
9) North Carolina
Most of these schools are predominantly football schools, which drive in more annual revenue on average than basketball.
It will be interesting, if the Mark Stoops era goes well, to see whether Kentucky can move up the list.
