The LSU Tigers have historically enjoyed success in the postseason, as the program had won 11 of its past 16 bowl games, but the Iowa Hawkeyes were looking to buck that trend in their matchup in the 2014 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida. 

Coming into the game, both teams were certainly well-nourished given the amount of food they consumed at the Outback Bowl dinner:

He and running back Jeremy Hill helped establish a dominant ground game that the Hawkeyes were unable to contain, and Hill carried the Tigers to a 21-7 lead into the final two minutes of the game: 

 

But the Hawkeyes made things interesting thanks to a big kickoff return by Jordan Cotton, which led to a quick Iowa score to keep the game interesting:

 

But after LSU recovered the onside kick, they ran the clock out and hoisted the Outback Bowl trophy:  

 

And Hill was named the game MVP in what may have been his last game as a Tiger as he mulls over a chance to go to the NFL:

 

 

Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz was very impressed with LSU: 

 

The real winners of the Outback Bowl were the fans though, as they get  a nice discount at Outback Steakhouse:   

 

Now that LSU's season is over, they'll await the decisions of several underclassmen on whether they'll return to school or declare for the 2014 NFL Draft, but none of them have made that decision just yet:
