LSU vs. Iowa: Five Burning Questions for the 2013 Outback Bowl

LSU quarterback Matt Flynn looks to complete a pass against Iowa in the 2005 Capital One Bowl. The Tigers lost against Iowa 30-25 in the only meeting in school history.

LSU fans predicted before the season began that the Tigers would play Iowa in the Outback Bowl, right?

Most fans figured the Tigers would lose some games due to an arduous schedule and their high roster turnover, so playing in a New Year's Day Bowl is not the worst consolation prize. 

The Tigers will look to give Les Miles his seventh 10-win season in Baton Rouge with a win over the Hawkeyes while Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz will attempt to defeat an SEC opponent in the Outback Bowl for a second time after beating South Carolina in 2009.

Expect old-school smash-mouth football when the Tigers and Hawkeyes meet. Miles and Ferentz would not have it any other way.

LSU and Iowa have only faced each other once before, when the Hawkeyes snuck by the Tigers in the 2005 Capital One Bowl, thanks to the late heroics of quarterback Drew Tate.  

Here are a few helpful details for this season's Outback Bowl:
