Someone needs to update an Outback Bowl newspaper advertisement as soon as possible.
On Monday, Reddit’s Twitter account relayed a photo of an advertisement in the latest edition of the Tampa Bay Times that shows the Outback Bowl matchup showcasing Florida and Iowa. Problem is, that game happened on Jan. 2, when the Gators routed the Hawkeyes 30-3. The next Outback Bowl will pair South Carolina against Michigan on Jan. 1.
The Tampa Bay Times is headquartered in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Outback Bowl is held in nearby Tampa, Fla., at Raymond James Stadium, making this error a little more cringe-worthy.

Hey, mistakes happen. But in this era of social media and instant takes from anyone with a Twitter account, gaffes like this become national fodder quickly.
Here’s guessing the error will be corrected soon.
