Outback Bowl 2014 live stream will be available for LSU vs. Iowa. TV game start time for the 2014 Outback Bowl will be at 1 p.m. ET, with ESPN providing the coverage for the game on Wednesday (Jan. 1). According to a report from ESPN on Wednesday morning, the current odds have the LSU Tigers as 7 1/2 favorites heading into the contest. They also have the over/under at just 49 points, suggesting a defensive minded match-up is pending.
LSU comes into this game with a 9-3 overall record and a 5-3 mark from in the SEC. It's the 14th consecutive year that the school has made it into a bowl game and thy come into the game averaging 37.0 points per game. That is 21st best in the nation, which is a bit of a departure from the low-scoring teams that the school has had in past years. With Anthony Jennings at quarterback and star running back Jeremy Hill leading the way, this team isn't afraid to press the tempo. The test will be whether the team can overcome losing Zach Mettenberger to injury.
The Iowa Hawkeyes finished 8-4 out of the Big Ten conference, winning four of their last five games to come into the postseason with a bit of momentum. The team has a really good defense that only allowed 18.8 points per game during the college football season. It will have to step up big on New Year's Day, as LSU is likely to try to pound the ball with Hill to see if he can break a few runs. It will be important to control him and give quarterback Jake Rudock the chance to succeed on offense.
