The game was on every screen, as the fans watched the Iowa Hawkeyes take on the Florida Gators in the Outback Bowl.

"I can't wait, after the Rose Bowl loss last year, I just can't wait to get back on track and hopefully winning a bowl game because it's been so long," said Austin Chesney, Owner, Public House.

The fans were hopeful that the Hawkeyes would win.
