Wow, that is amazing Louisville can pay a visiting team $95,000 plus hotel expenses. How much revenue can they bring in for a home game? Top BCS football programs only pay $300-600,000 to the visiting team, if I'm not mistaken, and they can have an attendance of 100,000 at a much higher ticket price. The YUM Center only seats 22,500. I guess they think virtually any visitor can fill it pretty close to capacity.
