Florida vs. Iowa
Why to watch
Florida and Iowa first met in the 1983 Gator Bowl when the Gators topped the Hawkeye's 14-6. This time around, the meeting comes on New Year's Day and without question is one of the most anticipated games of the bowl season. Florida is led by SEC Freshmen of the Year QB Chris Leak and its ever-resilient coach, Ron Zook. After a slow start that saw the Gators lose three of their first six games, Zook was able to ignore rumors of his firing and get things turned around with eight wins.
