Notre Dame beats Bama in Appearance Fee

(CNN)-Notre Dame has already beat Alabama … at least when it comes to profits.

Records from collegiate athletic departments show both schools in the National Championship game have football programs that make millions.

But
Notre Dame's profits, including the $6.2 million dollar
appearance fee for the BCS game, should catapult the Fighting Irish
past the Crimson Tide, at least when it comes to money.

When it comes to the top earning teams, that designation goes to the University of Texas.

The
Longhorns pocked $77.9 million dollars in profits last season though it didn't translate into a shot at the National Title.
