According to Troy they are getting $900,000 to play tonight's game. That's a lot of money for one freakin game.

Not really.   The going rate for a guarantee game against a FBS opponent is right around a million, and is only going up.

Got to pay the going rate. No one is going to volunteer to come to Fayetteville to play a Petrino coached team for free.

You both are right.  It is the going rate, but that doesn't change the fact that that is a lot of freaking money for a patsy win.

Somehow I think the UA comes out ahead on this deal. It's only a couple of times a year.

I bet that particular rate is going up. Hard to see a team with post-season aspirations lining up to be slaughtered.
