Florida State and Florida are projected to participate in BCS games, while the Miami Hurricanes are projected to take on Rutgers in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
If the latest bowl projections by CBS Sports' Jerry Palm are any indication, the state of Florida will be in for a handful of meaningful and entertaining college football games during bowl season.
Palm's latest projections have the Florida Gators taking on the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sugar Bowl. Florida's last appearance in a BCS bowl game came in 2009, when the Gators dismantled the Cincinnati Bearcats, 51-24. If Florida and Oklahoma meet in the Sugar Bowl, it'll mark a rematch of the 2008 BCS National Championship Game, when the Gators bested the Sooners, 24-14.
Florida State, meanwhile, is projected to take on the Louisville Cardinals in the Orange Bowl. The Seminoles' last appearance in a BCS game was in 2005, when Florida State lost in triple overtime to the Penn State Nittany Lions, 26-23.
