All you have to do is mention “Outback Bowl” to your server. That’s it. But today, Sat. January 2nd, is the ONLY DAY to do so. So get going already.
For ‘America’s Boldest Rivalry,’ the 2016 Outback Bowl in Tampa, FL matched a team from both the SEC and Big Ten conferences, represented by the University of Tennessee Volunteers and the Northwestern University Wildcats, respectively. A win from Northwestern and the Big Ten would have meant a free coconut shrimp appetizer from Outback Steakhouse. But a dominant, blowout victory of 45-6 by the SEC’s Tennessee Vols guaranteed a free Bloomin’ Onion® to any party willing to utter the phrase.
In 2015, Outback Steakhouse gave away over 75,000 orders of Coconut Shrimp after the Wisconsin Badgers victory. Considering the Bowl’s escalating popularity and this year’s 30th annual game, it is expected that the number of complimentary appetizers will be surpassed.
