2011 Bowl Projections: Current Projections Place Florida In Gator Bowl, Florida State In Champs Sports Bowl

After struggling through much of the first half against the Furman Paladins of the FCS, the Florida Gators pulled away in the second half, coasting to a 54-32 win, securing their sixth victory of the season, making them bowl eligible. Representatives of the Gator Bowl have said that Florida, despite their not-too-stellar 6-5 mark, will be invited to play in the Jacksonville-based postseason game. They are currently projected to face the Ohio State Buckeyes from the Big Ten.

The heavily favored Florida State Seminoles lost a 14-13 heartbreaker to the Virginia Cavaliers on Saturday night, snapping a five game FSU winning streak. It was Virginia's first win in eight tries in Tallahassee. Florida State ends the year with their traditional season finale next Saturday when they face the Gators. 

Here are current bowl projections for Florida and Florida State:

Champs Sports Bowl, December 29, 2011

Notre Dame vs. Florida State

Gator Bowl, January 2, 2012

Florida vs. Ohio State
