Wisconsin named one of the most attractive schools for future conference expansion

Wisconsin football was named one of the most attractive schools for any future conference expansion, according to an article by FootballScoop.

The ranking takes into account the factors that television executives are looking for: brand value, market size and general success.

FootballScoop’s exercise took every team in the nation and power-ranked them based on if conferences were disbanded immediately and built from scratch.

Wisconsin is No. 14 on the list with a total score of 241.9.

The 13 schools ranked ahead of Wisconsin, in order: Ohio State, Michigan, Alabama, USC, Texas, Notre Dame, Georgia, Penn State, Florida, UCLA, Oklahoma, LSU and Texas A&M.

This list will be interesting to revisit if conference expansion continues in the next few years — notably with the ACC’s current struggles.
