Outback Bowl TicketsWhen the Hall of Fame Classic moved to Tampa, Florida, in 1986, it became known as the Hall of Fame Bowl and was played at Tampa Stadium. It usually paired teams from the Southeastern Conference or the Atlantic Coast Conference with teams from other conferences since it had no tie-ins. Outback Steakhouse became the game’s official and only sponsor in 1995 and moved the game to the newly built Raymond James Stadium in 1999. Since then, it has been known as the Outback Bowl, and its conference tie-ins are now with the SEC and Big Ten. The Outback Bowl is always played on New Year’s Day unless it happens to fall on a Sunday. In that case, it is played the next Monday. The Iowa Hawkeyes and the Michigan Wolverines share the honor of most appearances in the Outback Bowl with six each. A few game MVPs include Jamie Morris (TB) of Michigan, Bobby Engram (WR) of Penn State, Dallas Baker (WR) of Florida and Jalen Hurd (RB) of Tennessee. Grab your Outback Bowl tickets at StubHub.
