Racers Seek Payday at FSU

Posted: Updated:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Murray State coach Chris Hatcher doesn't leave any doubt about why he's willing to let his lower-division Racers to take on No. 7 Florida State Saturday. Money.

The Football Championship Subdivision school from western Kentucky visits a Florida State team that some, including Hatcher, believe could challenge for the national championship this season.

Hatcher says, "we make no bones about it, it's all about the money."

Florida State guaranteed the visitors $450,000 in exchange for what the Seminoles and their fans fully expect will be a win.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher isn't buying that "pay for a win" theory in total, although he expects to get a look at a lot of players Saturday. About 55,000 fans are expected for the game in the Seminoles' 83,000-seat stadium.
