Peach Bowl Game Thread: Michigan vs Florida

Michigan looks to stay undefeated against Florida all-time with a peachy victory over the Gators in Atlanta.

Several famous Floridians have failed to top Michigan on the gridiron.

Tim Tebow. Urban Meyer. Heisman runner-up Rex Grossman. Ron Zook and Jim McElwain (okay, the list falls off a cliff a bit).

Former Florida offensive coordinator Dan Mullen is on the list, as well. However, the last time he met Michigan, his Mississippi State Bulldogs blasted Rich Rodriguez 52-14 in the 2011 Gator Bowl.

Eleven wins. New Year’s Six bowl. Big Ten vs. SEC. There’s plenty on the line, so let’s get to it.


Teams: No. 7 Michigan Wolverines (10-2) vs. No. 10 Florida Gators (9-3)

Date: Saturday, Dec. 29, 2018

Location: Atlanta, Georgia

Kickoff: Noon ET

Television: ESPN

Radio: Michigan/IMG Sports Network (for a list of affiliates, click here)

Today’s Question: Who do you want to see Michigan play out of conference?

Florida has been on the schedule a lot recently — in fact, it’s now five times since 2003. LSU was an opportunity this bowl season, but what other teams do you want to see?

Name programs such as Texas, Oklahoma, Washington and UCLA are on the docket down the road.

A couple other ideas? The Wolverines have never met LSU or Clemson, and hasn’t played Georgia since 1965.

Have a peachy day, comment below on the game, question...hell, anything you want!
