In a series that was initially planned as a home-and-home between LSU and the TCU Horned Frogs, in 2013 and 2014 has now been moved to one single bout and has been relocated to a neutral location.

The two teams will now play on one of the biggest stages of all: Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

Many who were looking forward to seeing two hard fought matches over the next two season, are disappointed.

But as in many things in life, money always talks.

From being a participant in the Cowboys Classic is an instant cash cow for both teams in the contest.

In the 2011 game between LSU and the Oregon Ducks. The Tigers took home $3.5 million dollars, while the Ducks went home with $2 million in their pocket.

In this season’s contest between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Michigan Wolverines, both teams easily pockets well over $4 million for both sides.

Not to mention, TCU knows how valuable playing in the Cowboys Classic is, having taken home $1 million in their game against the Oregon State Beavers.

Regardless of us not having the opportunity to face off against TCU in two games, the Tigers have the chance to face off against TCU the whole world will have their eyes on – and will have some extra pocket change to bring back to Baton Rouge.
