The Pac-12 Conference set a record for revenue in the 2012-13 fiscal year, according to a report by Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News.

According to the Pac-12's 990 tax form, Wilner reported that the conference brought in $334 million. That's up from $175 million in the 2011-12. The biggest revenue source was from TV and media rights that brought the conference $252.7 million.

All told, each team received about $19.8 million each.

The Pac-12 beat the SEC by nearly $20 million and the Big Ten by nearly $15 million.

Utah's share in 2013 was $10,161,634, which is significantly less than the rest of the conference due to a revenue sharing agreement the university signed when it joined the conference. The Utes will receive a full share starting the 2014-15 fiscal year.
