College football fans once again have a chance to voice their opinion on what teams they want to play in the Outback Bowl. Each year the bowl asks fans to vote for the SEC-Big Ten match-up they'd like to see play in Tampa's New Year’s Day game by participating in the bowl's Online Fan Poll at www.outbackbowl.com.
"We like to get input from the fans and see who they are really excited about seeing in the game, provided they are available to us," explains Mike Schulze, Outback Bowl Director of Communications & Sponsorships.
The Outback Bowl gets the third choice of teams from the Big Ten and Southeastern Conferences. There are currently eight teams from those two leagues ranked in the BCS Top 25.
Last year’s game featured a triple-overtime thriller between Michigan State and Georgia.
Teams are expected to be announced on Sunday, December 2. This year’s game will be played on January 1st in Raymond James Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00PM ET.
Tickets to the bowl are available online through www.ticketmaster.com, by calling 800-745-3000, or at Ticketmaster outlets throughout Florida. Fans can get information on bowl events, area hotels and attractions, etc. at www.outbackbowl.com or on our website at www.visittampabay.com/OutbackBowl .
