It's finally here. Football is back. The fans are excited, and Tampa Bay is crawling with Black and Gold. Less than an hour left until kickoff. The Gazette has an awesome site that they have been updating leading up to the game - HAWKEYEBOWLGAME.COM. The Gazette guys will be live blogging - join in HERE. Don't forget to take a look at Hawkeyesports.com's coverage of the Outback Bowl, as well.
Spurrier is running his mouth about injuries, yada yada. I'm just looking forward to see them strap on the chin straps and go at it. Should be a great game.
No in-depth analysis today. Just getting ready for the game.
Offensive Player of the Game: Shonn Greene (Look for him to run all over the Gamecocks)
Defensive Player of the Game: Pat Angerer (Looking a pick from him and a boatload of tackles)
Iowa - 31
South Carolina - 21
