Penn State’s Lost Bowl Revenue Will Again Go To Big Ten’s Support of Children

by and on June 03, 2014 6:55 AM

The money Penn State would have made from Big Ten bowl revenues after the 2013 season will be distributed evenly among the 12 Big Ten schools for the second straight year so that each can donate to child support efforts in their local communities.

A total of $2.75 million will be divided into 12 sums of $229,367, an increase of about $41,000 per school from last year.

Penn State has had to forfeit bowl revenue under sanctions imposed by the Big Ten and the NCAA in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

In 2013, Penn State's share of bowl revenue was smaller -- less than $2.3 million -- meaning that each Big Ten university received $188,344.

Penn State will split its share of the funds between the Stewards of Children and the Children’s Advocacy Center this year, the same two organizations that received funds last time around.

With George Mitchell’s continued votes of confidence in Penn State’s efforts to comply with recommendations in the Freeh Report, it's conceivable this might be the last year the bowl revenue donations will be required.
