The Alabama Crimson Tide will host the ULM Warhawks in 2022 and 2025, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the contract for both games was obtained from the University of Louisiana at Monroe and the University of Alabama via state open records requests.
Per the contract, Alabama will host ULM at Bryant-Denny-Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Sept. 17, 2022. The Crimson Tide will pay the Warhawks a $1.915 million guarantee for the game.
Three seasons later on Sept. 6, 2025, Alabama will again host ULM. The guarantee for that contest goes up $10,000 to $1,925,000.
Not including game guarantees with additional stipulations (i.e. coaching changes or location changes), Alabama now owns the three largest non-conference payouts. The Crimson Tide are also set to pay Utah State a $1.91 million guarantee for their contest in 2022.
Three other SEC schools have guarantees of $1.9 million for future games — Auburn (vs. UMass in 2020), Texas A&M (vs. Kent State in 2021), and Georgia ( vs. Kent State in 2022).
