Prediction & Game Preview To Come

Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL, 1:00 ET, ABC

Florida, SEC, 8-4

Don’t get too hung up by a second straight year of ugliness to close out the regular season. Florida State and Alabama might have hammered the Gators, but at least they still had a College Football Playoff argument to be made late in November, and at least they got to the SEC championship game for a second year in a row. Now we get to see a little more about how good Florida might really have been with several weeks off to heal up a brutally banged up team. Not everyone will be back, but few bowl teams will benefit more from the break. Come up with just a little bit of offense in Tampa, and the defense will take care of the rest.

Iowa, Big Ten, 8-4

All things considered, 2016 is ending a lot better than it started. The Rose Bowl vs. Stanford was ugly enough, but losing early – especially to North Dakota State – was a killer. But the Hawkeye defense rebounded, the offense found some power to the ground game, and the team has been solid over the second half of the year.
