Oklahoma State opens its 2012 season with a home opener against Savannah State Saturday.
The Cowboys are a 67.5 point favorite in the game according to Pregame.com, which is the biggest point spread in recorded college football history. The previous high was 60 points by Hawaii over Northern Colorado on Sept. 1, 2007.
For Savannah State, the game represents a whole lot more.
The school will reportedly receive $385,000 to travel to Stillwater and most likely receive a beating by Oklahoma State. The following week, the Tigers will travel to Tallahassee to take on No. 7 Florida State at Doak Campbell Stadium.
The Seminoles booked the game with Savannah State as a last-minute replacement for West Virginia, which dropped the game after its move to the Big 12.
For their troubles, Savannah State will receive $475,000. Which means that the school will make a total of $860,000 in its first two weeks.
That’s one expensive cupcake.
