For some reason I remember the Outback bowl starting in the morning? Am I out of my mind?
Yeah, I remember the Outback being an 11AM start in the past.

It was from my mom asking me what I want for Christmas.
This year's bowl bid has a couple of lucky numbers going for it:
-Even up the W/L's with a W: 20-20
-40th Bowl Appearance
Gator meat on the menu! Things are looking up.
