MAC will pick up some of NIU's ticket, hotel obligations
Mid-American Conference commissioner Jon Steinbrecher isn’t going to let Northern Illinois’ trip to the Orange Bowl become a financial loss.
The share of revenue the five nonautomatic qualifying conferences will receive from NIU’s BCS appearance will be around $12 million. Steinbrecher said the MAC expects to receive roughly two-thirds of that money, about $8 million, with the league’s presidents coming up with a plan to distribute the funds among the MAC’s schools sometime this week.
Another $12 to 14 million will be split among the five non-AQ leagues and the amount allocated to the MAC will be based on competitive performance after the bowl season, according to the MAC office.
