The LSU Tigers are the 2014 Outback Bowl champions and whether fans are tasting victory or swallowing defeat, everyone gets free eats with free Bloomin’ Onion appetizers at Outback restaurants. On January 2, 2014, guests can join the celebration by simply saying “Outback Bowl” to their server to receive the offer, which will be valid with any 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. 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.
According to sources associated with Outback, with the 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. It's never been a better time to celebrate and Outback is looking to serve up many more winners all day Thursday. Enjoy!!
