Fans to Travel for Outback Bowl


By Crandall Sims

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Kick-off between the Gamecocks and the Michigan Wolverines is still weeks away, but already USC has announced travel packages complete with tickets, hotel stays and a tailgate party.

My Carolina Alumni Association Spokesperson Brad Muller says about 40 fans have already signed up. The packages were just announced this week.

Muller says the successful ten win season, a fourth-straight win against Clemson and another big named team match-up in the Outback bowl are expected to get more fans to Tampa.

If you choose to go with the University package, the starting price is $379.00. That includes your hotel stay, transportation to the game, pregame party admission and much more.

Or, if you are making your travel plans seperately, the University is offering a tailgate only package that's priced at $40.00.

Gamecock fans are also encouraged to head over to the Green Iguana on New Year's Eve for the parade. Cocky and the USC Cheerleaders are also supposed to be there.
