(USA TODAY) -- Outback Bowl in Tampa | No. 14 LSU (9-3) vs. Iowa (8-4)
Time/TV: 1 p.m. ET/ESPN. Surface: Grass.
Glantz-Culver line: LSU by 8. Sagarin difference: LSU by 7.53.
Bowl records: Iowa 14-11-1, LSU 22-21-1. Series: Iowa 1-0 (30-25 in 2005 Capital One Bowl).
Synopsis:Yes, that lone encounter between these two was memorable - or at leastthe ending was as Drew Tate and Warren Holloway hooked up for animprobable 56-yard touchdown on the game's final play.
Thisyear's version of the Hawkeyes hasn't been as explosive, but Iowa isquite happy to be here nonetheless after going 4-8 a year ago.
HawkeyesQB Jake Rudock relies on a rotation of running backs, with Mark Weismandoing most of the heavy lifting. Tigers LB Lamin Barrow should be busy.
LSUdoes have a fair bit of offensive firepower, but the absence oftriggerman Zach Mettenberger (knee) could dampen it. Taking over atquarterback will be freshman Anthony Jennings. He has superb talent onthe outside with WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, and he'll haveto use them to keep Iowa LB Anthony Hitchens from paying too muchattention to TB Jeremy Hill.
