(WTVM) -

Baseball players have well-known incentive clauses in their contracts that guarantee extra money for certain benchmarks like home runs or stolen bases.

College football coaches have the same type of arrangement. Gus Malzahn, the Auburn football coach, and Jimbo Fisher, the Florida State football coach, have a lot to gain if they win the BCS Championship Game tonight.

If Florida State wins, Fisher will get a $325,000 bonus from FSU.

If Auburn wins the national title, Malzahn will take home $500,000, not to mention pocketing an extra $100,000 for finishing in the top five in the country and $25,000 for a thirteenth win on the season. In all, $625,000 is up for grabs for Malzahn.
