That's right, that's the net profit on an appearance in the BCS championship game if you believe this piece from the Gainesville Sun.
When you play for the national championship there is a misconception that the schools participating reap a $17 million pay day.
Florida is hoping to make $47,400.
According to the budget approved by the University Athletic Association's board of directors last week, UF will spend $2.42 million on the game and receive $2.467 million in revenue from the SEC. The rest, as usual, goes into a pot that includes all bowl revenue and is split by the other 11 conference schools and the league office.
