The University of Texas has cashed in on the most royalties from the sale of licensed merchandise of any school represented by IMG-owned Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), according to a company release via ESPN.

CLC represents nearly all major schools with the exceptions of Michigan State, Ohio State, Oregon and USC.

This is the eighth straight year the Longhorns have topped CLC's list of clients. CLC's royalty rankings are based on merchandise sales from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013.

Schools that saw their royalties increase dramatically include Notre Dame, which rose from ninth last season to third after playing  in the 2013 BCS title game.

Texas A&M, which benefited from Johnny Manziel winning the Heisman Trophy in the school's first year in the SEC, moved up from No. 19 to No. 12. A study shows that Manziel's Heisman year produced more than 1.8 million media impressions, which translated into $37 million in media exposure for Texas A&M.
