The Georgia State Panthers are in for some lopsided contests in coming years, playing at West Virginia and Alabama in 2013, but it won't be for nothing.

The Georgia State Panthers are seeing better offers for their guarantee games, reports Doug Roberson at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The 0-6 Panthers might find wins in 2013 as difficult to come by as they did in 2012, but it won't be for nothing. Golden State will receive $550,000 for their game at the West Virginia Mountaineers, and will get $700,000 for playing on the road against the Alabama Crimson Tide. The transition to FBS is driving up what the Panthers earn; in 2010 the school received $400,000 to play the Tide.

The totals are far from the highest in college football, but it's more than many schools get. With the ACC adding an additional non-conference game to their schedule, teams like Georgia State foresee more opportunities in the future.

Roberson provides these numbers for some of Georgia State's guarantee games:

2010: Alabama, $435,000
2011: Houston, $300,000
2012: Tennessee, $500,000
2013: West Virginia, $550,000
2013: Alabama, $700,000
2015: Oregon, $900,000
