On January 2, guests can receive a free Bloomin' Onion appetizer. To receive this offer, guests simply need to mention “Outback Bowl” to their server. The free appetizer must accompany an additional purchase.
The 2014 game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Outback’s hometown, marks the 19th year of Outback Steakhouse's title sponsorship of the Bowl, which is the longest active bowl sponsorship in history. This year’s game was as exciting and competitive as ever, but ultimately the Tigers took home the 2014 Outback Bowl trophy. The Tigers, in their first-ever Outback Bowl appearance, helped continue the South East Conference's dominance in this storied bowl game's history, beating the Big Ten Conference's Hawkeyes 21-14.
With LSU’s win, Outback is preparing to give away the equivalent length of 7,780 football fields worth of Bloomin’ Onions. That equates to 442 miles of Bloom petals - that's 29 million inches (or the equivalent of the height of the population of Miami), or 2.3 million feet (that's the equivalent of 1,600 Empire State Buildings!). Plus, to prepare for the celebrations, there will be 5,000 additional Outback staff members on hand tomorrow to get the restaurant ready for the rush.
