They grow 'em big in Wisconsin, and the SEC boys down South are no scrubs either. As such, the Outback Bowl provided the Wisconsin Badgers and Auburn Tigers (who will face off on New Year's Day in Tampa, Florida) with plenty to eat for a special dinner before the game.
The Auburn Gold Mine Twitter account tweeted out details of the feast:
Outback Bowl dinner for Auburn & Wisconsin: 750 pounds of steak, 900 lbs. of ribs, 750 lbs. of chicken, 1,600 shrimp, 1,200 lbs. cheese cake— Auburn Gold Mine (@AUGoldMine) December 26, 2014
Wisconsin redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Walker Williams sure seemed to enjoy himself:

Apparently playing in a bowl sponsored by Outback Steakhouse has its perks.
