Palm

With a third loss under their belt and a fourth likely coming next weekend to No. 1 Georgia, the Gators’ streak of three-straight New Year’s Six appearances is almost certainly coming to an end.

But if the bowl projections after Week 8 from CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm are right, UF won’t even be able to find its way into one of the premier non-NY6 bowl games after the season. Palm predicts Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Cincinnati in the College Football Playoff with Alabama and Kentucky representing the SEC in the New Year’s Six.

Florida, meanwhile, is projected to play its second game of the season at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, as Palm predicts that it will play against Boston College in the Gator Bowl.

The Gators have made nine appearances in the bowl game that shares their name, but many of those appearances came earlier in the program’s history. Since 1992, UF has only played in the Gator Bowl once, when it beat Ohio State after the 2011 season.

This would be a disappointing conclusion to a season that began with playoff aspirations, and it wouldn’t do much to take the mounting pressure off Mullen. But it may be the best the team can hope for at this point.
