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. That ranks fourth among the six BCS conferences (data is not available from the Big East, but they would be last among the 6 BCS conferences).

Strangely, it is the SEC that is now fifth among the BCS conferences. However, they are expected to renegotiate their deal in the near future. And a look at the chart below shows why.
