Meyer Goes Out A Winner As Florida Gators Beats Penn State In The Outback Bowl

Ahmad Black's interception return for a touchdown in the final minute sealed a back-and-forth Outback Bowl, as Urban Meyer ended his successful tenure at Florida with a 37-24 victory over Penn State.

Meyer previously announced he was stepping down as Florida's head coach due to family reasons, and he fittingly bookended his six-year reign with Outback Bowl wins, this one coming against the all-time bowl wins leader in Joe Paterno.

Jordan Reed and John Brantley split time under center for Florida (8-5), with Reed tossing for 61 yards and adding 70 more on the ground. Brantley completed 6-of-13 passes for 41 yards while Omarius Hines rushed for a score.

Matt McGloin threw for a touchdown and added another on the ground for Penn State (7-6), but the sophomore quarterback was intercepted five times.
