Best in Merchandise? It's Texas

For the second year in a row, Texas has topped the Collegiate Licensing Company's list of team merchandise sales, reports John Maher of the Austin American-Statesman.

The Georgia-based firm represents nearly 200 colleges, as well as bowl games, athletic conferences, the NCAA and the Heisman Trophy. CLC's most recent rankings reflect the fiscal year from July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007.

Notre Dame finished second, followed by Florida, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Penn State.

Completing the top 25: Louisiana State, Florida State, Auburn, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Illinois, Arkansas, Miami, Clemson, South Carolina, Kansas, Duke, Oklahoma State and Minnesota.

Texas Christian, which finished 58th, made the biggest jump with a move up of 12 spots from last year.

Ohio State fans take note: The Buckeyes are not affiliated with CLC, so these rankings are missing a powerhouse in world of collegiate merchandise sales.
