The Gator Bowl features a pair of teams off of disappointing seasons from the standard these programs have set. Both Ohio State and Florida barely made it to a Bowl game each with 6-6 records on the season. Florida had an impossible task with five of their losses coming at the hands of teams that went a combined 53-10 on the season, and at one point three of them were ranked No. 1, 2 and 3 in the BCS standings and a fourth, Georgia, played for the SEC Championship. It made a huge difference in the Gators offense which averaged just 12 points per game in those five games, but 35.3 ppg in all their other games. While I don't think they get to 35 here they don't need to with a low total, and the fact that QB John Brantley who missed time is healthy again, adding to the potency of their offense. Ohio State allowed just 16.3 ppg in their first seven, but the defense surrendered 20+ to each of their last five opponents, at 27 ppg. The Buckeyes’ offense also came to life in the last five, averaging 27.6 ppg. Florida has gone a perfect 7-0 to the OVER in their last seven vs. the Big-10, and I like this one to go OVER the total.
