TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It may be against the rules for players to excessively celebrate on the field, but at Outback Steakhouse® we think excessive celebration is 'Just Right.' As the LSU Tigers and Iowa Hawkeyes prepare to go head to head at the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, Outback is launching the 'No Rules, Just Celebrate' sweepstakes encouraging fans to show off their best touchdown dance. One hundred lucky winners will receive a $25 Outback gift card. Plus, everyone will have something to cheer about win or lose- with a free Bloomin' Onion or Coconut Shrimp appetizer on January 2.
Fans can join in on the fun by entering the nationwide sweepstakes now through Jan. 1. To enter, fans simply show-off a photo or video of their very own excessive celebration touchdown dance through Instagram or Twitter by using the hashtag #TeamBloominOnion or #TeamCoconutShrimp.
"A game like football needs to have rules, but we're a little more flexible," said Mike Kappitt, Outback Steakhouse® Chief Marketing Officer. "Excessive celebration may not have a place on the field, but we welcome and encourage it in the Outback."
The excessive celebration continues through Jan. 2, where victory or defeat, everyone gets free eats. If LSU takes home the trophy, Outback will give away free Bloomin' Onions and if Iowa prevails, it will be free Coconut Shrimp for all. To receive the offer, guests simply say "Outback Bowl" to their server. The offer won't be announced until the clock expires, so make sure to tune into the game at 1 p.m./EST on Jan. 1 to cheer on your team and find out which appetizer wins.
The 2014 game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Outback's hometown, marks the 19th year of Outback Steakhouse's title sponsorship of the Bowl, which is the longest bowl sponsorship in history.
