Boise State will receive $9.4 million dollars from the Mountain West's record $47 million payout, which stands to reason, since we earned most o' that. Commissioner Craig Thompson sang the praises of the conference and its member schools, including this little nugget I didn't know:

With BSU's schedule containing a few Friday night slots, the question is being asked if we're competing with a traditionally high school sports night.

This being the NCAA, they would probably get our playoff spot.
