Bowl Predictions


VS

GATOR BOWL
West Virginia 8-3 vs Miami 9-2
The Gator Bowl spent a good deal of the off season shopping for another bowl opponent for the 2nd place team from the ACC. The continued imbalance of the Big East compared to the ACC did not warrant a great match up in their eyes. The Gator Bowl tried unsuccessfully to lure the SEC, but did reach a partial agreement with the Big 12. The new match up will alternate between a 4th place Big 12 team or a 2nd place Big East team against the ACC's 2nd place team. The last year of the current agreement will see two former Big East rivals square off. West Virginia will have an outside shot at an automatic BCS bowl berth, but will make a third straight appearance in Jacksonville. Miami will make their third ever trip to the Gator Bowl.
