OUTBACK BOWL PICTORIAL COLLAGE
By Leo Haggerty

Just wanted to take you, the readers, behind the scenes both before and after the 2018 Outback Bowl.  You saw what happened between the lines with a great comeback victory by the South Carolina Gamecocks over the Michigan Wolverines.  We wanted to give you a little bit of a glimpse as to what was transpiring pregame as well as post game such as the preparation for our stand up at the 50-yard line at the conclusion of the contest.

Also, we wanted to do it with photographs as opposed to with verbiage.  You know what they say and that’s a picture is worth a thousand words.  Plus, you don’t want to read a doctoral thesis on a football game no matter how exciting, right?.

So, from all of us who covered the Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium on a chilly New Year’s Day for It’s Sports Magazine as well as Knights Sports Productions, enjoy our photography journey from around an hour before kickoff to about an hour after the final whistle blew.

If you like or don’t like this format, please take the time to send us a quick commentary.  That way we can continue, or discontinue, this type of reporting.  We always want to give the readers what they want.

Also, the pictures are in chronological order starting at the bottom and working back to the top.  Got to make you work a little bit, right?

All photos by Ryan O’Connell and Kelly Haggerty.  Enjoy.
