The Cincinnati Bearcats and the Kent State Golden Flashes will have to take on in-state foe Ohio State on the road but their trips to Columbus won’t come without a nice payout.
Both schools will receive nearly a million dollars for their Sept. matchups with the Buckeyes. Cincinnati will get $888,246, while Kent will earn $850,000, according to The Associated Press. The Bearcats play at the Horseshoe on Sept. 27, while Kent State visits on Sept. 13.
When you throw in Virginia Tech, the Buckeyes will dole out more than $2 million to host non-conference opponents.
