TAMPA, FL — 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 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.
“It’s not scientific so it’s not, in itself, going to determine the match-up, however, we like to get input from the fans and see who they are really excited about seeing in the game,” 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 Top 25. Teams are expected to be announced on December 7, though at least one team could be announced sooner.
