Brian Kelly's win over Ole Miss ensures significant financial bonus
LSU pounded No. 7 Ole Miss at home on Saturday, 45-20.
Jayden Daniels accounted for 369 total yards and 5 touchdowns in the win, as the Tigers moved to 6-2 on the season.
There are 4 games left in the regular season and more wins will likely come LSU’s way if it can continue to play like it did Saturday.
But the win over the Rebels makes the Tigers bowl eligible, which means a significant bonus for 1st-year coach Brian Kelly, who earned an extra $500,000 with Saturday’s win.
Don’t normally do this before time expires, but LSU coach Brian Kelly is going to pick up a $500,000 bonus with Tigers becoming eligible for a bowl game by beating Mississippi to reach six wins for the season

The Tigers will be off next Saturday for their lone bye week. But they have a huge game coming up in 2 weeks when they play host to Alabama at Tiger Stadium.
