Outback Bowl: Florida Gators vs. Iowa Hawkeyes

Florida enters the Outback Bowl in a funk, coming off two blowout losses to rivals, while Iowa ended the regular season by winning three straight.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

The Outback Bowl loves Florida and Iowa (this will be the third time they've played each other). I guess what the bowl doesn't like is offense. Florida ranks 115th in total offense and 110th in scoring. Iowa ranks 77th in scoring and 120th in total offense. My goodness these defenses will feast

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

The Outback Bowl sure loves Iowa. The Hawkeyes are going to the game for the fifth time since 2003 and will play Florida as its Outback opponent for the third time. Offense will likely be at a premium in this game.
