LSU bowl rumors are circling on Twitter...LSU to Outback Bowl?


@DellengerAdv 5m
Reset on #LSU bowl watch: @rwood_SC reporting Outback unlikely to take SC under any scenario. That almost certainly means LSU to Outback.

@LSUbeat 4m
Sounds like the switch is happening. With USC having been to Outback recently & LSU in Dallas constantly, they'll opt for change in scenery.

@LSUbeat 2m
Here's the kicker: If LSU goes to the Outback, theres a very high likelihood they will play…Wisconsin.


Also: Cotton Bowl considering USCe.

Stating this the following:

quote:

CEO Rick Baker on why the Cotton Bowl has historically taken SEC West teams:

“You’re absolutely right. We have tended to lean a little bit toward Western teams, and a lot of that is just because of the way the conference has set up our pecking order after the BCS. You’ve got Cap One, and when we are interested in an East team, we have to pick after the Outback picks too. So it puts us even farther down the food chain a little bit when we look East, so what’s tended to happen is, by the time you get through the BCS and the Cap One and the Outback, they’ve pretty well taken the best of the East. The West has been so good here, especially in the past half-dozen years or so, it’s just the way that it’s happened. But we’ve had Tennessee before, a couple times here in the last 10 years, so we’re certainly not adverse to taking East teams. It’s just that the way everything is set up, we just haven’t had the opportunity to do that.”


quote:

aker on significance of hosting Steve Spurrier at the Cotton Bowl:

“Coach Spurrier makes it special. We’ve had many, many hall of fame coaches over the years coach in the Cotton Bowl, and there’s certainly no doubt coach Spurrier will be a hall of famer someday. We would be very proud to have coach Spurrier coach in our game. Things just never worked out that way in the past. That’s why we’ve been a little more optimistic this year that there might be more of a chance than what we’ve normally had. We want a good, compelling matchup”

for anyone with a brain, this has been the likely bowl possibility for lsu for a long time. lsu fans may actually go to this one.

I don't see how Wisconsin happens. Are they thinking only 1 Big 10 team gets into the BCS, sending the championship game loser to Cap1???

Would much rather the cotton bowl, but whatever.

ETA: just realized against Wisconsin.. That would suck.

Well.. that's pretty much exactly like a home and home with Wisconsin..
In two consecutive games..
and neither of them being at a home site.
The complaints have obviously been heard!

That means we will play Wisconsin 3 times in 3 years. Twice in '14 and then again in '16.
