PAC-12 Bowl Participant Payouts: Since 1999

(Sorted by average amount brought in by a school, per season)

(Individual bowl game amounts were compiled using figures provided by collegefootballpoll.com).

 

First, a couple notes . . .

  • For the 2008-2009 bowl season, California’s bowl payout was listed at $750-825 thousand. They defeated Miami (FL), so we will use the $825 thousand figure.
  • For the 2009-2010 bowl season, USC’s bowl payout was listed at $750-825 thousand. They defeated Boston College, so we will use the $825 thousand figure.
  • For the 2010-2011 bowl season, Oregon was the automatic bid; Stanford was an at large. As such, Stanford is listed as having $6 million, the proper amount for a second team from the same conference.
  • For the 2011-2012 bowl season, Oregon was the automatic bid; Stanford was an at large. As such, Stanford is listed as having $6 million, the proper amount for a second team from the same conference.

 

Last season, 2010-2011, the PAC-12 expanded from ten teams with the addition of Mountain West powerhouse Utah and Big XII North member Colorado. The PAC-12 kept their nine game conference schedule, and split into divisions, with the best conference record-holder hosting the other division champion. Oregon beat PAC-12 South Champion UCLA in Eugene last season, with Oregon earning the Rose Bowl bid.

 

Not surprisingly, USC has led the PAC-12 in money brought into the conference via bowl bids, despite a two-year absence from bowl games, due to sanctions. Oregon’s recent success has put them in second place, far and away. Arizona has some work to do, but with Rich Rodriguez taking over, the Wildcats hope to replicate their success from the 2008, 2009, and 2010 seasons.
