Liberty will receive $1.25 million for its November 18, 2018 visit to Auburn, according to copy of the contract obtained from Auburn University under the Freedom of Information Act.

Currently, this is the largest reported figure the Flames will receive for a football game. Previously, it was reported that Liberty will receive $500,000 and $700,000 for games against the University of Virginia and $1 million from Rutgers.

Based on contracts received to date, Liberty will take in a total of $1,750,000 from Virginia and Auburn in 2018 and pay out a total of $1,620,000 to Old Dominion and Norfolk State.

The meeting in 2018 will be the first ever meeting between Liberty and Auburn and the first time the Flames have ever matched up on the gridiron with a member of the SEC. The Tigers were 8-5 in 2016 and lost to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl on January 2, 2017. Liberty has never defeated a Power 5 Conference team, losing to Virginia Tech, West Virginia (twice), North Carolina, Wake Forest (twice), and NC State.
