Championship Saturday is in the books and the field appears to be near set for where Michigan football will be bowling to close out this season.

Here is where some of the major outlets have the Wolverines going:

SB Nation: Florida vs. Michigan, Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1)

ESPN: Florida vs. Michigan, Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1)

Fox Sports: Florida vs. Michigan, Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1)

CBS Sports: Florida vs. Michigan, Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1)

Campus Insiders: Florida vs. Michigan, Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1)

Orlando Sentinel: Florida vs. Michigan, Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1)

It seems pretty unanimous, eh?

If/when this game is announced, it will be the first time that the two teams have met since the 2008 Capital One Bowl, which was the last game Lloyd Carr coached at Michigan. The Wolverines took down the Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer-led Gators by a score of 41-35.

The bowl slate will be announced this afternoon, so we'll have coverage of where Michigan is heading as soon as it hits.
