How Much Buckeyes Pay to Run Up Record

Each year Ohio State University’s football team plays other football teams that are (how shall I say) “not as good.”  OSU and other big college teams do this to run up their records in September of each season before conference play starts.

osu_fansIn 2014 OSU will be handing out checks worth over $2 million to get non-conference teams to play them.  THE University of Cincinnati is getting a quick pay day of $888,246. Kent State will be paid $850,000 for the two hour bus ride.  Virginia Tech will show up at the Horseshoe and get a measly $350,000.

ESPN also reports the Buckeyes are getting a check themselves.  $850,000 to play Navy in Maryland to open the 2014 college football season on August 30th.
