Boise State To Receive $1.2 Million For Game Against Michigan State In 2012

One of the interesting things about Michigan State's contract with the Boise State Broncos for a three-game series between the two teams is the money involved. From Blue-Turf.com:

Boise State will receive a guarantee of $1.2 million for the 2012 game and the schools will exchange $300,000 for the games in 2022 and 2023.

In recent years, it has been commonplace for teams to pay anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million for non-conference games. Typically the teams receiving those checks are non-BCS schools or FCS schools, so this isn't that unusual. Still, it's always strange to see that a team like Boise State, which is now well-known on the national stage, is going to get so much for the game in 2012. Then again, in 2022 and 2023 the teams will essentially trade a few hundred thousand dollars, so no cost will be involved in making those games possible schedule-wise.
