Auburn adds Alabama State to 2021 schedule, will pay $1 million total

If you don’t have any plans for Nov. 20, 2021, you’re in luck. Alabama State will travel to Jordan-Hare Stadium to play Auburn on that date, the school announced today.

That meeting will be the second between the two Alabama schools, with payouts for both games totaling over $1 million. 

The first will take place on November 16, 2018, costing Auburn $515k, according to the Montgomery Advertiser. Payout for the 2021 game will be even bigger at $530k. 
 If you aren’t one for long-term plans, Alabama A&M will travel to Auburn this fall.

It’s nice to see the SEC football power spreading that money around, especially to HBCUs.  Auburn brought in nearly $125 million in revenue in 2015—11th in the nation— while Alabama State brought in just over $14.5 million.

    i just do not understand how is it that all the lower tier schools of the SWAC are receiving these very lucrative paydays in the SEC and Gram has the biggest of the cats in LSU right in it's back door and will not even be given a chance. Hell this is either racist or politics, no other way to look at it.
