Gators likely headed to Gator Bowl with win
If the Gators (5-5) beat Furman on Saturday to become bowl eligible, they are pretty much a lock for the Gator Bowl in Jacks0nville, which will be played at EverBank Field on Jan. 2. It would be the Gators' first appearance in the bowl since 1992, when they beat N.C. State 27-10.
ESPN experts are torn on some of the potential SEC schools' final destinations. Here are some possible SEC bowl matchups I'm looking for:
BCS National Championship Game: LSU vs. Oklahoma State
LSU has to get by Arkansas and OSU has to get by Oklahoma. Great matchup in WR Justin Blackmon and QB Brandon Weeden vs. LSU's secondary.
Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs. Houston
How will QB Case Keenum and the Cougars' high-flying offense fare against an elite SEC defense?
Capital One Bowl: Arkansas vs. Nebraska
Pro-style offense vs. spread-option offense.
Outback Bowl: South Carolina vs. Michigan
South Carolina's defense will have its hands full with QB Denard Robinson.
Cotton Bowl: Georgia vs. Kansas State
Cotton gets a team from the Eastern Division for a change.
Chick-fil-A Bowl: Auburn vs. Virginia Tech
If the Tigers somehow beat Alabama, this could change.
Gator Bowl: Florida vs. Ohio State
Officials would love a rematch of the 2006 national title game.
Music City: Tennessee vs. Miami
QB Tyler Bray's return makes this an intriguing matchup.
Liberty Bowl: Vanderbilt vs. Southern Miss
Commodores make just second bowl game since 1982.
BBVA Compass: Mississippi State vs. Louisville
Bulldogs cap disappointing season in Birmingham, Ala.
