Texas A&M most valuable football program, Ducks 12th, according to Forbes

Texas said she hopes her son will grow up a Texas A&M Aggie fan

Forbes magazine on Tuesday released its list of most valuable college football programs based on estimate averages for profits and revenue for the 2014, '15 and '16 seasons. From 2014 through the 2016-17 season, the A&M athletic department brought in $260 million in contributions, which was nearly twice as much as any other school made in the same time.

LSU comes in with $112 million in revenue, and $56 million in profit. In 2014, the Aggies were just the thirteenth most valuable college football program, with a team value of $78 million and a revenue of $58 million.

Over those three years, Texas A&M has averaged annual revenues of $148 million, while the Longhorns averaged $133 million in revenue.

The Texas A&M surge to the top spot was due, in part, to donations taken in by the athletic department.

The only other Texas program to make it into the top 25 was Texas Tech.

In December, Texas A&M lured coach Jimbo Fisher from Florida State with a 10-year, $75 million fully guaranteed contract.

According to the report, increased athletic department contributions and more money from ticket sales and its share of SEC revenue accounted for A&M's jump.

Their 2012 move to the Southeastern Conference didn't hurt either, as the league shelled out another $41 million to each member school. They also have just one national championship between them in the last thirty years.
