Wow was I way off a few weeks ago when I guessed which teams will be here in the Outback Bowl this year! Well, it just goes to show you what a crazy season it has been in college football. This past weekend the teams were announced and this should without question be one of the most exciting games we have seen in a while!

Having said that, congrats to the Iowa Hawkeyes and the South Carolina Gamecocks for making it to the Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium on New Year's Day.
