This years’ Peach Bowl will be played between the Florida Gators out of the SEC and the Michigan Wolverines out of the Big Ten.
The Gators and Wolverines have met four times since 2003. All of these have resulted in a Michigan win and bragging rights for the Big Ten Conference. Florida will be looking to end this losing streak to Michigan and finish a solid season under new head coach, Dan Mullen. It is important to mention that three of their four meetings have come during bowl season which is what this meeting will be once again.
As mentioned above, Dan Mullen has had a ton of first year success at his new program. This is the first bowl for Mullen with Florida and the first chance for him to reach double-digit wins with his new school. They will first have to take down a good Michigan squad with a solid defense.
Offense will be something Dan Mullen will need to improve moving forward. The quarterback play was overall inconsistent and they did not seem to produce enough offense when they needed to win the big games. The only real blemish of coach Mullen’s record was the loss to Kentucky. The Gators will likely rely on their rushing attack if they are going to win the Peach Bowl.
Defense for the Gators has been good, but also somewhat inconsistent. For example, they shut down LSU this year, but then were torched by Georgia. Their pass defense was top ten this year and will look to shut the Wolverines.
Michigan saw their arch-rivals blow them out back at the end of November, eliminating them from the College Football Playoff. They completely fell apart in this game allow 60+ points when they allowed an average of 17.6 points per game throughout the season. They will be looking to bounce back and at the very least walk away with a Peach Bowl trophy.
The offense has been secondary to the defense all season. The Wolverines do not have the big time stats like a lot of other teams, but they usually seem to get the job done. Look for Michigan to be able to move the ball against the Gators and have a decent offensive day.
Michigan’s defense has basically number one all season until they played Ohio State. They still have good stats and ranks but the game against the Buckeyes was abysmal. They will likely find Florida much easier to defend, so expect the Wolverines to play the defense the rest of the country is used to seeing them play.
