Forbes Magazine released two interesting statistics in terms of college football teams and their values on Thursday.
Arkansas and Kansas State, who will meet next month in the Cotton Bowl, were both mentioned.
The Wildcats were ranked as the nation’s top college football team for the money. According to Forbes, K-State had $11 million in football expenses this season. Based on its 10-2 record, it spent a nation low $1,086,705 per win.
The Razorbacks, meanwhile, came in as the eighth most valuable college football team in the nation. According to Forbes, the Arkansas football team was worth $89 million this past season. That number is up 59 percent from a year ago, when it came in at No. 17 at $56 million.
Topping the list of most valuable college football teams: Texas at $129 million.
Editor’s Note: On Jan. 6, the Kansas State football team will face Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl. With that in mind, I began counting down to the big game in Cowboys Stadium on Dec. 6 by attempting to write 31 blog posts in 31 days. I use the word “attempting” because I can only think of so many blog ideas at the moment. I’m confident that I can go 31 for 31, but your help is appreciated. Feel free to send a blog idea (or two) my way at firstname.lastname@example.org.
