The Southeastern Conference has won six straight BCS Championships. But when it comes to television revenue, the other big conferences are the big winners.
With the ACC just signing a new TV deal with ESPN worth $3.6 billion over 15 years, schools in that conference now make an average of $17.1 million per year.
