In a bit of a stunner, the Florida Gators will play Penn State in the Outback Bowl. Originally, it was rumored that Florida and Penn State would fall to the Gator Bowl, but the Outback Bowl scooped up UF as they have an earlier pick of the SEC and Big Ten bowl eligible teams. UF is 2-0 all-time against Penn State.
The Gator Bowl is rumored to have picked Michigan and Mississippi State.
Florida is 1-2 in the New Year's Day game, losing to Michigan and splitting with Iowa. Also, it puts UF firmly in their Tampa Bay fan base, so I will see you bastards in orange and blue on New Year's Eve in South Tampa and at the game.
