Missouri’s athletics department reported a 50 percent jump in operating revenue for the 2013 fiscal year, raking in $76.3 million compared to $50.7 million in 2012, according to figures submitted to the NCAA.

Of course, much of that was expected.

The Tigers received only $1.81 million in NCAA and conference revenue in the 2012 fiscal year after leaving the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference.

During its first year in the SEC, Missouri received $21.1 million, which accounts for most — but not all — of the $25.6 million revenue boost.

Tickets sales and contributions spiked in 2013, including an increase of $3.6 million for football ticket sales.

That represents a 22.25 percent jump. The 2013 fiscal year ended June 30, so those sales do not reflect last season, when the Tigers’ football team matched the school record for wins, going 12-2 and winning the SEC East division championship as well as the 2014 Cotton Bowl.

Missouri men’s basketball saw a 6.2-percent increase in ticket revenue from $4.85 million to $5.15 million in 2012-13.
