Where Pac-12 teams are ranked on Forbes’ list of most valuable college football teams in America

·3 min read

Like it or not, college football appears headed toward a set with two super -conferences after USC and UCLA opted to leave the Pac-12 and join the Big Ten.

Oregon and Washington are known to be interested in jumping ship as well, although a recent report indicates the Big Ten is waiting to hear what Notre Dame does before it commits to adding more members.

The Big Ten and the SEC are on a crash course to collect not only the highest performing college football programs in the country, they want the most valuable schools as well.

A list from Forbes from back in 2019 shows which college football programs have the most monetary value, and while those numbers have likely shifted in recent years, it does show why USC (although not UCLA) would be appealing to the NCAA’s premier conferences.

It also paints a positive picture for both the Ducks and Huskies, who each ranked (at the time) ahead of USC in overall value.

Here is a look at each of the top-25 most valuable programs in college football in light of recent realignment discussion:
