2009 Outback Bowl: Iowa vs South Carolina
|South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier just confirmed moments ago that his Gamecocks were invited to play in the Outback Bowl and will face the Iowa Hawkeyes.|
South Carolina is 7-5 on the season, and finished with a 4-4 conference record in the SEC. Kick-off is at 10AM Central Time on New Year's Day. This marks the 3rd time Iowa will play in the Outback Bowl. The Hawkeyes are 1-1 in their two previous appearances, both against Florida. This will also be the fifth time Iowa will play in a New Year's Day bowl since the arrival of Kirk Ferentz 10 years ago.
