It is no secret that big-time college sports is a big-money business, and last year no school made more money from its athletics program than Texas A&M University.

In all, there are now 24 schools that make at least $100 million annually from their athletic department, according to data collected from USA Today and the U.S. Department of Education. That is up from 20 a year ago and 13 in 2014.

Here are the 25 schools that make the most revenue off of college sports and where most of the money comes from, including football, men's basketball, and women's basketball revenue, the three sports that typically generate the most money.
