As of noon Tuesday, Arizona State will be the final Adidas school in the Pac-12.
UCLA is expected to announced a record-setting deal with Under Amour and leave Adidas, which has provided apparel to the school since 1999.
The schoolwide deal would be the biggest in history, eclipsing a 15-year, $252 million contract signed between Ohio State and Nike earlier this year.
UCLA has been with Adidas since 1999, and the school’s previous deal with the company, which was renewed in 2010, was worth $7.5 million per year.
As the announcement of UCLA’s apparel deal nears, here’s a look at the five richest deals in the nation right now and how UCLA compares. Ohio State leads the pack with its 15-year, $252 million deal it signed in January, followed by Texas, Michigan, Notre Dame and Cal.
Correction: Wisconsin’s 2015 deal with Under Armour was worth $96 million over 10 years, putting it ahead of both Notre Dame and Cal.
UCLA, which is expected to drop Adidas and sign with Under Armour, according to Scout.com, had one of the top contracts in the nation before this year. The seven-year extension signed in 2010 was is worth $7.5 million, however Ohio State, Texas and Cal all inked new deals this year that dwarfed UCLA’s. Michigan dropped Adidas and agreed to a 15-year deal with Nike worth up to $169 million in July 2015, but the final number increased to $173.8 million by the time the two parties signed on the dotted line in April 2016.
