The Outback Bowl extended its contract with the SEC, Big Ten and ESPN through January 1, 2002, according to Brett McMurphy of the TAMPA TRIBUNE. The bowl "will guarantee a minimum" of $3.3M to the teams for the '98 game, then increase to $3.6M in '99, $3.8M in 2000, $4M in 2001 and $4.4M in 2002. The $2.65M per team in '97 is the third- highest paying non-alliance bowl game (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 7/29).
