Aggies Ranked in Top 20 of Forbes' Most Valuable College Football Teams

Forbes' list of the 20 most valuable college football teams for 2013 includes one newcomer from last year: Texas A&M.

The Aggies rank as the business magazine's 14th most valuable, coming in valued at $72 million, with estimated revenue of $54 million and profit of $36 million.

Forbes noted Johnny Manziel's Heisman season, the Southeastern Conference move and a trip to the Cotton Bowl as some of the reasons for their rise.

The University of Texas leads the list by a wide margin with a team value estimated at $139 million for 2013. Notre Dame is second at $117 million.

Nine SEC teams make the top 20, including Alabama at Number 3 ($110 million), LSU at Number 4 ($105 million), Florida at Number 6 ($94 million), and Georgia at Number 8 ($91 million).

A&M displaced Michigan State from the Forbes top 20.
