It is no furtive that Alabama is full of money. When you are a top-5 athletic initiative in income with an ever-increasing trophy case loaded with national competitions, you are not exactly concerned of cash.
Yet, what Alabama will supposedly give to Utah State to come in 2022 to Tuscaloosa is eye-popping to say at least. As per Brett McMurphy, the Tide will invest a gigantic $1.91 Million to play the Aggies at home-ground. According to McMurphy, that is the 3rd-biggest total ever for a visitor team. Unintentionally (or not), the other 2 biggest totals also originated from SEC groups.
Formally, the game has not been yet declared by any program.
Not that long back, $1 Million for a “profit game” was at the peak of the payment chart. Now, that milestone has been almost increased 2 times. Utah State will certainly and willingly agree to it. These profit games can be a greeting relief for a GoF (Group of Five) program.
Then once more, if Alabama is ready to invest so much for a beatable challenger in a nonconference sport, there is one inside its own state that will like to play.
With this news, Alabama has included its first challenger to its football pipeline for 2022. The Crimson Tide will welcome the Utah State Aggies at Bryant-Denny Stadium in a non-discussion game on September 3, 2022, Alabama declared this new through Twitter this week.
The reported discussion between the Aggies and Tide will set a new record. The two teams had a meeting in continuous years in 2004 & 2005 during the Mike Shula era. Alabama succeeded in both the games, but the 2005 competition was quitted. UA beat USU in 2004 with 48-17. Utah State last season had a 6-7 record but won double-digit games in 2014 and 2012.
