If Tech is willing to give away $1.25 Million to Boise State imagine what they plan on making off that game at least 3 Million I am guessing

Boise State gets $1.25 million from Virginia Tech

Posted by ESPN.com's Graham Watson

Boise State announced late Thursday night that it will face Virginia Tech on Oct. 2 at FedexField in Landover, MD.

Boise State will receive a school record $1.25 million guarantee for the game, which is one of the highest known guarantees among some of the nonautomatic qualifying schools. Arkansas State received $1 million to play Auburn in 2010.

"We are very excited about facing the caliber of a team like Virginia Tech," Boise State coach Chris Petersen said in the school's release. "They have an outstanding program and will be a tough opponent. Hopefully are fans will travel across the country to see the Broncos play."

Boise State and Virginia Tech have never played ad this will be only the second meeting between the Broncos and an ACC team. The Broncos lost to Boston College 27-21 in the 2005 MPC Computers Bowl. Virginia Tech has not faced a member of the current WAC.

The game will mark the second time Virginia Tech has hosted a team at FedexField. The Hokies opened the 2004 season with a 24-13 loss to USC.

Virginia Tech is the final piece of the Broncos 2010 nonconference schedule. Boise State hosts Toledo on Sept 11, travels to Wyoming on Sept. 18, and host Oregon State on Sept. 25.

and this is why boise state will continue to build their already great program.. you take these paydays and it helps with soo much.

And when Boise wins this game it will simply make it that much sweeter and help them build the program that much more. This one should be funny.

dang thats more than UGA paying for the win against New Mexico in 2011.

As these Big school *cough Michigan cough* continue to run and hide from these Home and Home series these smaller schools are going to keep raising the price for a guaranteed one and done game. -_- -_- Which may not be a bad thing.

Yep, I remember several years ago when East Carolina seemed to be on the road every week playing much more prominant opponents. It worked well for them too. Though not quite as well as it has for Boise.
