AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn's trip to the BCS championship game cost $3.13 million, mostly for transportation and meals.

The university released a breakdown of expenses Saturday in response to open records requests. The Tigers lost 34-31 to Florida State at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

Auburn spent $1.68 million on transportation costs for 848 people, including the band and cheerleaders.

It cost Auburn $382,917 for transportation and meals for its 39-member official party — including faculty members and athletic department staffers. Names weren't released.

The school also spent $58,315 to absorb the cost of 211 unsold tickets.

Southeastern Conference teams get $1.975 million for participating in the BCS championship game. The league and each member school get a share of the remainder of the $18 million payout.
