Based on calculations from the 2021-22 season, the following distributions were made in the spring of 2022:
Each of the 10 conferences received a base amount. For conferences that have contracts for their champions to participate in the Orange, Rose, or Sugar bowls (the “Power of Five”), the base combined with the full academic performance pool was approximately $74 million for each conference.
The five conferences that do not have contacts for their champions to participate in the Orange, Rose or Sugar bowls (the “Group of Five”) received approximately $95 million in aggregate (full academic pool plus base). The conferences distribute these funds as they choose. Notre Dame received a payment of $3.55 million by meeting the APR standard; the other three independents shared $1.88 million.
