For the first time in 25 years, the LSU football team will play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.
West Monroe -- For the first time in 25 years, the LSU football team will play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.

The Tigers will face Iowa of the Big Ten Conference in Raymond James Stadium live on ESPN on Jan. 1, 2014.

LSU holds a 22-21-1 all-time record in bowls yet has lost consecutive games for the first time since 1985-86 seasons.

The Tigers will play on New Years Day for the 23rd time in school history, and will meet a Big Ten opponent in a postseason bowl for the fifth time, all since the 2001 season.

Meanwhile despite being bowl eligible, the ULM Warhawks were not selected to play in a bowl game this year. 

The team had held out hope for a spot in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, but instead Arizona will face Boston College on New Year's Eve.

Auburn will face Florida State in the BCS National Championship game.
