(AP) — The Big 12 Conference is distributing about $345 million of revenue to its 10 schools for the 2020-21 school year.
The $34.5 million per school is down from about $37.7 million last year. It is the second year in a row the average per school has been lower because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says the overall revenue was about $50 million short of what had been expected before the pandemic.
But he anticipates revenue numbers increasing next year, likely to more than $40 million per school.
