What channel is Auburn vs. Minnesota on today? Time, TV schedule for Outback Bowl 2020

Sporting News

No. 9 Auburn and No. 16 face off in the Outback Bowl on Wednesday, one of four of the New Year's Day college football bowl games, including two New Year's Day 6 bowls in the Sugar and Rose bowls.

Auburn (9-3, 5-3 SEC) made it to the Outback Bowl with a strong, season-long defensive effort, one that helped limit LSU and Heisman-winning quarterback Joe Burrow to 23 measly points. The Tigers enter this matchup with Minnesota as a top-10 team thanks to ranked wins over Oregon, Texas A&M and Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

The Gophers (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten) enter the Outback Bowl under slightly different circumstances. They started the season 9-0 but lost two of their last three games, including to rival Wisconsin, to fall to the Outback Bowl after having Playoff — at least Rose Bowl — aspirations. That said, coach P.J. Fleck would love nothing more than to cap an impressive season in the Big Ten with a win over an impressive SEC opponent.
