This story also lists all the amounts for all the Guarantee Games this season.     Some of them are pretty significant.

Very cool article.  I guess I never quite realized just how many games are considered money games.  Thanks for sharing!

Very neat. I guess I never realized that P5s paid other P5s just to get the game at home, I guess?

LSU is getting $1.5M to play Texas. That's a whole lot of money especially since LSU is favored..
