  5. Buoyed by turnaround season, Purdue bucked a trend in college football by increasing attendance by more 13,000 fans per game in 2017 - and, in the process, banked an extra $2.5 million in revenue compared to 2016. Attendance at the FBS level was down overall last season by 1,409 fans per game, according to NCAA stats . While media rights deals with television networks bring hundreds of millions of dollars into major college football programs, the bulk of which goes to schools in the Power Five, game-day revenue is still important.

    Notre Dame's president ripped the NCAA's decision to deny the school's appeal to restore 21 vacated football victories from an academic misconduct violation, saying the association ''perverted'' the notion that universities determine how they police academics. The NCAA denied Notre Dame's appeal Tuesday, wiping off the books all 12 wins from the Fighting Irish's 2012 national championship game run under coach Brian Kelly. John Jenkins says the penalty was unprecedented considering who was involved in the misconduct, and the school was being punished for rigorously enforcing its honor code.
