When Alabama A&M plays Auburn next season, the football program is expected to receive a little more than a $500,000 payout, according to a report.
The particulars of the contract were published in a story by AL.com in a story detailing the agreements between Auburn and their non-conference opponents.
Auburn’s biggest contract beyond 2015 is with Louisiana Monroe, which will receive $1.2 million in 2016 and $1.4 million in 2017. In-state foe Alabama A&M will be paid $515,000, the website said.
In addition to the half-million dollar payout, Alabama A&M will get 750 complimentary tickets from Auburn.
Not bad for an FCS HBCU in exchange for taking a few lumps at the hands of SEC power.
