The Rankings

The Wall Street Journal found that the Louisville Cardinals are worth the most with a value of $367,435,000. Arizona is ranked second with a value of $314,959,000 while Kansas, Ohio State and final four bound Wisconsin round out the top five. 

The number one team in the country, undefeated Kentucky comes in at number six with a value of $213,285,000.
