The Outback Bowl, which will be played on January 1st at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, will pit the Auburn Tigers (8-4), who ranked 19th in the last AP Poll against the Wisconsin Badgers (10-3), who ranked 18th in the last AP Poll. Both teams enter this game coming off loss to their arch rivals. Auburn lost the annual Iron Bowl to Alabama, 55-44. Ninety-nine combined points marked the highest scoring Iron Bowl in history. Despite compiling 630 yards of total offense, Auburn was unable to come up with big plays at key moments. Quarterback Nick Marshall threw for 456 yards and three touchdowns while wide receiver Sammie Coates caught five passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns. Auburn’s defense was gashed for 227 rushing yards and four touchdowns and had no answer for wide receiver Amari Cooper. Cooper amassed 224 receiving yards and three touchdowns. While this isn’t the bowl game Auburn fans were hoping for, fans will pay top ticket prices for this matchup.

The average ticket price for Auburn vs. Wisconsin is currently $184.94 on the secondary market while the get-in price for the game is $79. That average price makes this the second most expensive Outback Bowl since 2010, behind the 2013 game between South Carolina and Michigan - known for the Jadeveon Clowney hit.

Wisconsin was completely embarrassed by rival Ohio State in the Big10 Championship game, 59-0. Down to their third-string quarterback, Ohio State was still able to compile 558 yards of total offense. Wisconsin’s defense was gashed for over 300 rushing yards. Running back and Heisman trophy finalist Melvin Gordon was limited to just 76 yards on 26 carries. Gordon has arguably been college football’s best player, compiling 2,336 rushing yards and 26 touchdowns. Look for Gordon to bounce back after a disappointing Big10 Championship game performance.

While fans can expect to pay top prices to attend the Outback Bowl, a match-up between Auburn’s rushing attack and Wisconsin rushing attack will be entertaining. Auburn will need to figure out a way to slow down Gordon who will probably be playing his last game as a Badger.
