Tampa, FL-- Tampa's popular Outback Bowl extended its contract with the Big Ten Conference through the 2019 college football season.
The 2013 Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, marked the 20th consecutive year for a Big Ten team in the bowl game. Michigan played South Carolina.
"With a premier NFL facility in Raymond James Stadium and a large alumni base in the state of Florida," said Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delaney, "we think the Outback Bowl is another terrific addition to a national schedule of bowl competition."
Outback Steakhouse recently extended its contract to remain as the title sponsor of the Outback Bowl.
