The Outback Bowl, a New Year’s Day tradition, changed its name to the Tampa Bay Bowl.
Outback has sponsored the football bowl game for 26 years.
Although the name has changed the game will remain at Raymond James Stadium. A team from the SEC will play against an opponent from the Big Ten or ACC.
“We are thrilled about our new Tampa Bay Bowl logo and name, which is a reflection of our 36-year relationship with the vibrant Tampa Bay region as one of the most exciting and hospitable destinations of any college bowl game,” bowl chair Rita Lowman said.
