Before No. 13 Northwestern and No. 23 Tennessee square off in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, the two teams battled their plates Saturday night during the bowl game's annual welcome dinner in Tampa, Florida.

With Outback sponsoring the game, it's no surprise their food game was on point. The feast included steak, chicken, ribs, shrimp, salad, appetizers and desert -- combining for more than 5,000 pounds of food.
