Outback bowl brings millions to Bay area

CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (970 WFLA) – It’s beach day on Clearwater Beach for the LSU and Iowa teams. 

They're in Wednesday's Outback Bowl in Tampa. The bowl's Mike Schulze said it's a welcome break for Iowa fans.

“Well the fans absolutely love coming here. The Iowa fans have been here a few times before, so they know what a special place this year is and what a great bowl trip this is. The LSU fans are quickly finding that out. It is a great destination. We think the best destination in the country for a college bowl game,” Schulze said.

Schulze said the expected economic impact from the bowl game is between $30 and $40 million dollars.

You can hear the game live on our sports station 620 WDAE beginning with the 12:30 pre-game show.
