Boca Raton Bowl
When the presidential debate was at Lynn, Boca was offered the chance to sponsor the event and get recognition, they passed and it became the presidential debate from Lynn Univeristy in Palm Beach County Florida. I would expect something similar here

I like how the writer says that for $200k they get the name on the bowl and to FREE 30 second commercials…doesn't sound free to me.
What does FAU stadium get? Seems like the only entity to get money out of this is ESPN. We all know that the participating teams will probably have an operating loss to come down and play. Does ESPN pay rent to the stadium?
Doubt FAU will get rent from ESPN. I assume FAU would get to keep money from concessions as well as exposure. I'm sure that was our cut and we were willing to take pretty much anything to get this to happen.
Fast forward a couple years when the contract comes up again and FAU will likely be in a better position to ask for more money.
