After today, the only college football game left on the docket for this season will be the National Championship. This means that you have to go out with a bang. So call out of work, pick up eight Bloomin’ Onions and a keg of Foster’s, and enjoy the slate of games.
All four of today’s matchups look highly appealing, but we are here to discuss the Outback Bowl between the 20th ranked Florida Gators (8-4) and the 21st ranked Iowa Hawkeyes (8-4). This game has all of the makings of a defensive slugfest, as the 40.5 over/under is the one of the lowest I’ve seen this bowl season.
This will be the 31st edition of the Outback Bowl and the 21st game since a delicious Australian-themed steakhouse became the sponsor. From 1986-1995, the game was known as the Hall of Fame Bowl, which is an excruciatingly boring name. Since becoming the Outback Bowl in 1996, the game has featured the third choice from the Big Ten taking on the third choice from the SEC.
Florida and Iowa have previously met up three times, and the Gators currently hold a 2-1 lead in the series. Their last two matchups have taken place at Outback Bowls, with Florida beating Iowa 31-24 in 2006 and Iowa beating Florida 37-17 in 2004. Both schools will be making their fifth Outback Bowl appearances today, and both schools have posted 2-2 records up to this point. Something’s gotta give!
