The Crimson Tide have reportedly struck a deal with Utah State to host the Aggies in 2022 but it sounds like it's coming at a hefty price.
According to college football insider Brett McMurphy, Alabama will pay Utah State a whopping $1.91 million to come to Tuscaloosa in 2022. If those figures are true, it would mark the third highest amount ever shelled out to a visiting team.
