Numbers You Need: 3 September 2013

Impress your boss, dazzle your friends, bore your family with today's Numbers You Need:

450,000 — Payment, in dollars, to Austin Peay for their game at Tennessee Saturday, a 45-0 loss.

10,000,000 — Price, in dollars, of on-going stadium upgrades at Austin Peay

50 — Miles between Austin Peay's campus and Vanderbilt's. Despite this, Saturday will mark the schools' first meeting in football.

14 — Years between season-opening sellouts at Vanderbilt. Before Thursday's Ole Miss tilt, Vandy hadn't filled Dudley for its first game since Alabama came to Nashville in 1999.

9 — Consecutive seasons MTSU has played an ACC opponent. The Blue Raiders travel to Chapel Hill this weekend to take on North Carolina.

12 — Years since Tar Heels' coach Larry Fedora was the offensive coordinator at MTSU. In 2001, MTSU scored more than 30 points seven times, including a 70-point game against Idaho and a comeback against New Mexico State that included four touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

5 — Preseason touchdown passes by Titans back-up Ryan Fitzpatrick to lead the NFL.

26.9 — Average draft position for Chris Johnson in Yahoo fantasy football leagues. Johnson is the best-ranked Titan by ADP.

146.5 — Average draft position for the Titans' defense in Yahoo. That ranks last in the NFL.

131.75 — Reported transfer payment, in millions of dollars, paid by Spanish soccer team Real Madrid for the rights to Welsh player Gareth Bale. In soccer, teams pay other teams (in this case, the selling team was English side Tottenham Hotspur) for the rights to a player (as opposed to trades, as are standard in North America) and there is, of course, no salary cap. An explainer here.

20 — Percentage, roughly, of Real Madrid's $650 million 2012 revenue paid for Bale.

17,600,000 — The equivalent payment the Preds would make for a hypothetical Bale in a hypothetical hockey transfer window, based on a reported $88 million in revenue.

54,000,000 — The equivalent for the Titans, based on the $270 million in reported revenues.
