Athletics, Applications, & Yields: The Relationship between Successful College Football and Institutional Attractiveness
Jones, Willis A.
College and University, v85 n2 p10-19 Fall 2009
This study examines the impact of fielding a successful college football team on institutional popularity using a dependent variable (admissions yield) and an independent variable (bowl game television rating) which have been unexamined in previous research on this topic. The findings suggest that college football success is correlated with a small but statistically significant increase in institutional popularity. (Contains 3 tables.)
