How much is your team worth?

January, 7, 2013
Wall Street Journal put together an interesting graphic of how much the top programs in college football could be bought for if they were professional franchises.

No. 1? No surprise, it's the Texas Longhorns, who could theoretically be yours for the low, low price of $761.7 million. That's a shade below $30 million more than any other program. Michigan came in at No. 2. No other teams were worth more than $600 million.

The report also notes that the Jacksonville Jaguars were sold in 2011 for $760 million.

Oklahoma came in at No. 10 on the list at $454.7 million. The next highest in the Big 12 is Texas Tech, which checked in at No. 22 with a worth of $211 million.

Oklahoma State was right behind at No. 23 at $209.1 million, with Kansas State at No. 24 at $207.1 million.

West Virginia is at $159.4 and finished at No. 32. Iowa State was No. 41, at $140.3 million.

KU was No. 51 at $103.4 million, and TCU was all the way down at No. 59 with $76.6 million. Baylor was worth $71.3 million and checked in at No. 62.
