SEC schools will share record-profits

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference will split $127
million among the 12 member schools in the revenue sharing plan for
the current fiscal year.
The figure announced by the league Friday is the highest in SEC
history and is $5 million more than last year. The fiscal year ends
Aug. 31.
The revenue sharing plans include money generated by television
and postseason games for football and basketball.
The league made nearly $51 million from football television and
more than $25 million from bowl games. The SEC football
championship game brought in almost $14 million.
Basketball generated nearly $38 million, most of that ($21.8
million) from the NCAA tournament.
The average amount distributed to each school was $10.6 million.
The bowl teams also kept $11.6 million.
