2009 Outback Bowl

2009 Outback Bowl Iowa vs. South Carolina Preview

The Iowa Hawkeyes beat a lot of good teams this year, while the South Carolina Gamecocks seemed to lose to a lot of good teams. What does that mean January 1 when they meet at Raymond James Stadium in the Outback Bowl?

Oddsmakers currently have the Hawkeyes listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Gamecocks, while the game’s total is sitting at 43.  

Iowa is 8-4 SU, 7-4 ATS  and South Carolina is 7-5 SU, 5-5-1 ATS 

The Outback Bowl is a New Year’s Day college football game matching teams from the SEC and Big Ten Conference (3rd pick from each).  The game kicks off at 11 A.M. on New Year’s Day.

After a loss at Illinois dropped Coach Kirk Ferentz’ squad to 5-4, Iowa upset then No. 3 Penn State, 24-23 on home town kicker Daniel Murray’s last-second, 31-yard field goal. After beating Purdue, Iowa destroyed Minnesota, to get into the Outback bowl.

In his fourth season as head coach Steve Spurrier has finally guided his team to a New Year’s Day bowl game. The Gamecocks finished the season with a 50-point loss at Florida, followed by a 17-point loss at Clemson however, so don’t get your hopes up to high.

This bout marks the first-ever meeting between Iowa and South Carolina.  The matchup in my eye will be the SEC speed or the Big Ten toughness that prevails, fans will find out Thursday.

Betting Trends:

Iowa is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games
Iowa is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games
South Carolina is 6-3 SU in its last 9 games
