Alabama has agreed to pay the Aggies $1.7 million
In addition to the extra game, Alabama has agreed to pay the Aggies $1.7 million dollars to travel to Tuscaloosa. This is a pretty nice payout for just one football game and will be a huge boost for the athletic department trying to keep an independent football team afloat.

Wow, I was impressed with A-State getting a little North of $1.5mm

This is getting a little crazy. I'm glad that they are getting the money, but why are a few SEC schools paying so much more than normal market of $1mm to $1.2mm?

This should help fuel home and home games between G5 and P5 as 2/3 or more can not justify paying this much for a game.

I don't get why Alabama is paying them that much money...

Costs of rehab for the two weeks after the game.

I'm sure FCS Idaho will be playing there for a cool $400K soon.

That's chump change for Alabama. I bet Nick Saban spends that much on a weekend fishing trip.

MORE CRAZINESS:

WKU will receive $1.9 million for playing the game, the most it’s ever been paid by an opponent.

I can see Alabama maybe.... but Auburn?

I guess the new reality is that you get paid $1.5mm to $2mm to play an SEC school.

This discredits the whole "they won't schedule XXX because we may beat them" myth:

"Since 2012, WKU has picked up three victories over SEC opponents."

WKU also has future non-conference games scheduled with Illinois, Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, Louisville and Indiana and now has three of four non-conference games scheduled for the 2022 season.

Yeah OK. For a lot of schools there is no fear. Kentucky has played WKU (and lost twice, lol) recently. But for Alabama and Auburn, they will play anyone in the world except us. Go check out the instate schools they've played. It's a long list, and we're not anywhere close to being on it.

To be fair, I don't see us playing Jacksonville State anytime soon, even though I would LOVE to play them.

How many of those three wins were against Vandy or Kentucky?
