MAC revenue increased 488% under College Football Playoff

7

In the last year of the BCS, the MAC got a payout of $2,394,206 from overall BCS revenues. In the first year of the College Football Playoff, that amount increased to an eye-popping $14,088,086, or more than $1 million per football member. The CFP may not be the fairest system, but at least with this small sample size, it's distributing a lot more money to G5 conferences than the BCS ever did.
