Outback Bowl South Carolina vs. Michigan

Both carrying winless bowl streaks to Tampa Bay, Florida, Florida and Iowa both look to snap their postseason funk on January 2 in the Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium. The Hawkeyes have not won a bowl game since 2010 while the Gators are losers of their last two. That includes last season’s beatdown from Michigan by way of a 41-7 score. Both teams bring lackluster offenses but capable defenses. The score will likely be close, but could entail sloppy play on the offensive side of the ball by both teams. Turnovers will be in attendance.

Iowa came out of the gate with a gut punching loss to Stanford in the opening weekend, and were 5-4 a little over half-way through the season. They rattled off three straight wins to match the 8-4 record of the Gators, whose latest game was a landslide loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game for the second consecutive year. Both programs certainly hope to point to this upcoming game as a potential stepping-stone for a more consistent 2017 season.
