With millions of TV dollars coming from the conference, Nebraska is one of the richest college football programs across the country according to Forbes.

According to a recent report by, the University of Nebraska is currently the nation's No. 10 most valuable football team.

With $35 million dollars profit in 2013, the Huskers are worth an estimated $80 million.

Here is what Forbes had to say:

"Nebraska joined the Big Ten from the Big 12 in 2011 but, because of the conference's expansion rules, the school won't receive a full conference distribution until 2017. That conference money, which consists of revenue from bowl games, TV deals and other sources, will reportedly be worth $26.4 million per full member school after 2013-14, and as much as $35 million in 2016-17."

Nebraska is one of three teams in the Big Ten on Forbes' most valuable list (Michigan - No. 5 and Ohio State - No. 9).

Texas tops the list across the country at an estimated $139 million dollars. The Longhorns generate over $30 million a year from ticket sales alone.
