Outback Bowl Details
With a love and demand for bowl games in warm-weather cities like Orlando, Miami, and Pasadena, it was a no-brainer for a city like Tampa, Florida, to establish a game. Back in 1947, it did, the short-lived Cigar Bowl (1947-1954).
However, the second attempt has been much more successful. It began as the Hall of Fame Bowl in 1986. In the early days, it did not have any particular conference affiliations, but organizers often tried to target an SEC or ACC team and one from another part of the country.
When Outback Steakhouse signed on as the title sponsor and changed the name to the Outback Bowl in 1995, official affiliations were made with the SEC and Big Ten.
The game moved from Tampa Stadium where it started to Raymond James Stadium after it was completed in 1999.
The first game was played on December 23, 1986, between Boston College and Georgia (a 27-24 win for the Eagles). Since then, every game has been played on New Year’s Day unless it happened to be a Sunday. In order not to compete with the NFL, in those situations, the game has moved to Monday.
It is often one of the first games of the day with a start time as early as 11 AM ET.
When and where is the 2019 Outback Bowl game?
The 2019 Outback Bowl is set to take place on New Year’s Day (January 1st) at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. This game is highly anticipated for football fans across the country, regardless of previous football roots and affiliations.
How much are Outback Bowl tickets?
The average Outback Bowl game ticket costs $145 on the resale market, but this may vary depending on the game’s matchup on any given year.
