One significant note dropped on Firday: the payout for every program involved in the game. Those payouts are being made in four tiers, according to Cllct Media.

Tier 1 receives $99,875.16 from the game, Tier 2 receives $59,925.09, Tier 3 receives $39,950.06 and Tier 4 receives $9,987.52. The groupings are done using AP Poll finishes from the past 10 years, as reported.

Wisconsin falls into a crowded Tier 2 along with Big Ten programs including Michigan State, USC and Northwestern.

Wisconsin’s last 10 years of AP Poll finishes are as follows: 18th, unranked, 8th, 6th, unranked, 8th, unranked, unranked, unranked and unranked.

A return to the program’s form from 2016-2019 is necessary for Luke Fickell to elevate it back into the sports’ top tier.
