COLUMBIA - South Carolina will receive $20.9 million from the SEC, part of the of record $309.6 million the richest league in college athletics will distribute to its 14 schools.
The conference's revenue distribution was announced Friday, the final day of the SEC spring meetings in Destin, Fla. Distributions are calculated based on the revenue sharing plan for the 2013-14 academic school year, according to the league.
The revenue is comprised of televised football, bowls, the SEC championship, televised basketball, the SEC men's basketball tournament, NCAA championships and a supplemental surplus distribution. It also includes $16.8 million of contracted revenue retained by schools that participated in bowl games last season.
The total does not include a $1 million academic enhancement payment from the NCAA that will be split among the 14 league schools.
The SEC's distribution from this year broke its previous record of $304.7 million from last year. That was a massive increase from the $256.9 million the conference distributed in 2012.
