The BCS 18th ranked Michigan Wolverines (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) will be making their second consecutive bowl appearance under the leadership of coach Brady Hoke in as many years and for the second year they will play a bowl game in January. The Wolverines were selected to play in the Outback Bowl on January 1st down in Tampa, Florida and the team will face the South Carolina Gamecocks  (10-2, 6-2 SEC) out of the SEC coached by Steve Spurrier. Although, this bowl game destination may not be the one that avid Wolverine fans and followers were expecting nor hoping for when the season started, none can deny that the match-up will be one of the more interesting of the bowl season. Steve Spurrier is a national title winning coach from his days at Florida and owns over 200 wins as a college coach. The Gamecocks are the 10th ranked BCS team and finished third in the SEC East behind Georgia and Florida. And Michigan coach Brady Hoke is looking forward to the game and stated, “South Carolina is an excellent football program and we look forward to the challenge of facing them on New Year’s Day.” The Wolverines finished second in the Big Ten Legends Division and three of their losses came against the Associated Press’s current #1 (Notre Dame), #2 (Alabama) and #3 (Ohio State) ranked teams in the country.
