2007 Beef Bowl at Lawry's Restaurant
Michigan players consumed 612 pounds of meat at this year's Beef Bowl according to Shawn Windsor's article in today's Detroit Free Press. The annual event is held at Lawry's Restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of Lawry's Beef Bowl. As noted in Windsor's article in the Detroit Free Press, the team that wins the Beef Bowl wins the Rose Bowl game 70% of the time. USC is at Lawry's Restaurant tonight (December 28th) trying to better Michigan's feat of finishing 612 pounds. Typically, teams average in the high 400s to low 500s. The Wolverines must have been hungry. Click here for a photo gallery of pictures by Eric Seals (Detroit Free Press) taken at The Beef Bowl. Michigan has enjoyed a lot of success at the Beef Bowl going 12-3 at the event. Unfortunately, it has not fared as well in the actual Rose Bowl games. This year, however, the Wolverines look to make a clean sweep of the events. Go Blue!
