MI was third on the list at $127 million in revenue and $75 million in profit, followed by Alabama ($127M/$59M) and Ohio State ($120M/$69M).

The Oregon Ducks were ranked 12th with revenues of $92 million and a profit of $54 million. There was only one other Texas team on the list: Texas Tech was Forbes' twenty-fifth most valuable program, with a revenue of $60 million and $31 million in profit.

Of course, neither A&M nor UT have been particularly good lately, combining for 56 wins and 50 losses since 2014.
