The SEC announced Thursday that it generated $777.8 million of total revenue during the 2020-21 fiscal year, which ended on Aug. 31, 2021. The revenue was distributed among the SEC's 14 institutions $54.6 million per school excluding bowl expenses retained by teams that went to bowl games following the 2020 season.

"The commitment of the SEC's 14 universities to provide an impactful and lasting student-athlete experience is enhanced exponentially by the substantial revenue distributed through the Southeastern Conference," said SEC commissioner Greg Sankey. "As a direct result of this distribution, SEC universities provide their student-athletes exceptional instruction, training, equipment, academic counseling, medical care, mental health and wellness support and life-skill development that is unmatched in intercollegiate athletics."
