Tampa has hosted the Outback Bowl for many years, and the Tampa Bay Times recently ran an ad promoting the 2018 Outback Bowl.

The game is set for New Year’s Day between Michigan and South Carolina, but the ad mistakenly promoted last year’s game between Florida and Iowa.

To be fair, it’s still 2017, so if someone looked up who was playing in the 2017 Outback Bowl, it would be Florida and Iowa. That’s what editors are for, though.

Hopefully the 2018 Outback Bowl between the Wolverines and the Gamecocks will be more entertaining than the Gators’ 30-3 blowout win over the Hawkeyes.
