LSU Athletic Dept. transfers $10M to university

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU's main campus is getting a boost from athletics this year.

According to the athletic department, it plans to transfer $10 million to the university, which is about $3 million more than its required payment.

Apparently, a surplus is to thank for the extra funds.

By the way, LSU is one of only seven athletic departments in the country that relies solely on self-generated revenue and does not take student fees.
