ESPN released a list of the top 10 most-profitable football programs for the 2011 – 2012 season. It’s really no surprise Texas is at the top of the list, but there are 5 SEC schools bringing in more money than Notre Dame, and one just behind them.

It’ll be interesting to see if this season sparks an influx of revenue for Notre Dame.
