Published July 30, 1997
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).
