Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Florida Gators
Jan. 2, 1:00 pm ET
EverBank Field (Jacksonville, Fla.)
Line: Florida -1.5
This is why I love bowl games so much. Neither Ohio State nor Florida had the type of season either program is used to, but now that the Buckeyes have hired former Gators coach Urban Meyer to rebuild their brand...well, this game has one huge storyline to follow. No matter what happens in this game, you get the feel that Ohio State is heading in the right direction and Florida is not.

After the ugly loss to Florida State in late November, Will Muschamp stepped to the podium with a clear message. The Gators needed to get tougher. The benefit of bowl practice is that Florida didn't immediately have to draw up a game plan or start preparing for an opponent. There were two weeks of practice that the coaching staff designed only for focusing on team improvements.
