Here’s how much money LSU made to appear in College Football 25

After more than a decade hiatus, EA Sports is reviving its beloved college football video game franchise.

College Football 25 is set to release on July 19, and we’ve seen few details when it comes to what will be featured in the new game.

We do, however, know how much the LSU athletics department received to license itself in the game, thanks to a report from Matt Liberman of cllct. FOIA requests revealed schools were paid based on a tier system, which was determined based on the team’s finish in the AP Top 25 over the last 10 seasons.

As a Tier 1 school, LSU received the highest possible payout of $99,875.16.

Most of LSU’s starters have reportedly opted into the game, as well, though several players — mostly freshmen and transfers — have not.

We’ll have to wait and see how LSU is represented in the final game, but we now know the program made a nice chunk of change to appear in it.
