Iowa takes on Nebraska.

Iowa is 6-5 and has lost two in a row since it blew out Ohio State on Nov. 4. The Hawkeyes have already wrapped up a bowl bid, and they play a Nebraska team that has nothing to play for this weekend.

All of those factors might make one wonder how much motivation Iowa will have against the Cornhuskers. Well, head coach Kirk Ferentz has 2.4 million reasons to want to win this game.

According to Patrick Vint of Go Iowa Awesome, Ferentz adds $2.4 million onto his already sizable buyout if his team beats Nebraska.

Ferentz's contract might be the best one a head coach has ever signed. Apparently, Iowa's assistants also have monetary incentives on the line.
