Houston: Tom Herman will receive a $5 million bonus if UH joins a Power 5 conference, AD Hunter Yurachek told reporters on Saturday.
LSU: The school’s board will consider an amendment to Les Miles’ contract that would pay him $600,000 if LSU win the national championship. That’s up from $500,000. The reason for the extra $100,000 is because of needing an extra win to win the College Football Playoff.
