Outback Bowl officials have confirmed that their 2017 game will be played on Monday, January 2nd along with the other traditional New Year's Day bowls. The game will also move its kickoff time back to 1:00 PM ET and be televised on ABC. The Outback Bowl, which celebrated its 30th Anniversary last season, hosts teams from the Big Ten Conference and Southeastern Conference at Raymond James Stadium.

Historically whenever January 1st falls on a Sunday the traditional New Year's Day bowls are played on January 2nd. This same situation arose in January 1989, 1995, 2006 and 2012. The Outback Bowl will return to the January 1st date for the 2018 game.

Tennessee Dominates Northwestern 45-6

It was a beautiful day at Raymond James stadium for the Tennessee Volunteers in the 30th Annual Outback Bowl. Led by a defense that keyed four interceptions and an offense powered by Outback Bowl MVP Jalen Hurd, the Vols smothered the Northwestern Wildcats 45-6 in front of a crowd of 53,202. Tennessee collected their first win of 2016 on the strength of 420 yards of total offense. Hurd contributed in a big way, running for 130 yards and a score. Quarterback Josh Dobbs added two touchdowns of his own on the ground, and safety Evan Berry returned an interception 100 yards late in the game to cap the team's ninth victory of the season.
