Arkansas State secures largest contract in school history

Posted by ESPN.com's Graham Watson

Arkansas State has secured a $1 million contract to play Auburn in 2010.

The contract is the largest in school history, topping the previous high of $900,000 with Iowa for the 2009 season.

Arkansas State and Auburn, which will play Sept. 4, 2010, have met just once before, a 27-0 victory by the Tigers at Auburn in 2006.

    "When we've had to look at playing guarantee games, we have tried to maximize those opportunities," Arkansas State athletics director Dr.?Dean Lee said. "The million-dollar mark is a small milestone to help us ensure that we are achieving full-market value for Arkansas State."

The school also announced that it has renewed its football series with Memphis for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. The Red Wolves will conclude their current four-game series with the Tigers on Sept. 10, 2011, then Memphis will visit Jonesboro on Sept. 8, 2012, and the Red Wolves play at Memphis on Sept. 21, 2013.

What's the most money we've received from a school for a football game? Any chance maybe Angelos can work on getting us 1 or 2 of those million dollar games. That'll help fund the football program

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Maybe we could get a team to pay $20 million and we could throw in naming rights for the stadium.  ;D

How does welcome to FAU football here at the brand new beautiful Schnellenberger Field at Auburn Tigers Stadium sound??  ;)

GO OWLS!!!

I'm actually a bit surprised they could even get them to play them, let alone pay them 1M…i mean look at what happened to SEC teams the last two seasons…

What kind of chance do you guys think they have in that game??

Pretty soon Auburn will have played every 'Belt team twice, while Troy sits an 1.5 hours away - willing to to go there any time for just about nothing.

Hmmmmm.

Go Plainsmen! ;)
