Florida Gators take on the Iowa Hawkeyes

Both teams come into the game with an 8-4 record on the season. Florida boasts the 6-ranked defense in all of college football. The Gators stop unit was plenty useful in 2016, as they held their first three opponents to an average of less than five points per game.
 
Their first road game was a 10-point loss to the Tennessee Volunteers, but they did not lose again for a full six weeks until things went very wrong during a road game at Arkansas. In the weeks in between, they registered incredibly impressive victories over both Missouri and Georgia.
 
After the highly-disappointing loss at Arkansas, the Gators bounced back and soundly defeated South Carolina before taking to the road in Baton Rouge and defeating the LSU Tigers by a score of 16-10.
 
The Iowa Hawkeyes went 6-3 in the Big 10 West Division this season. Their losses came against Northwestern, Wisconsin and Penn State. Their most impressive victories came against Minnesota, Purdue and, amazingly, the Michigan Wolverines.
 
The win against the Jim Harbaugh-led squad has gone a very long way toward the placing for the Hawkeye squad in this season’s bowl games. They have the 120-ranked offense in all of college football, but Iowa complements that with the 24th-ranked defense.
 
Amazingly, Florida is equally futile when it comes to offensive production. They have the 115th-ranked offense, but they have the 6th-ranked defense in all of college football. This means that this showdown on a perfect emerald pitch in southwestern Texas will be very low-scoring.  
 
The Outback Bowl originally began in 1986, during a time in which college football was at in its most magical era, according to many fans old enough to remember the glorious 1980s. It has long been a stalwart of Tampa, Florida which was universally known as Tampa Bay up until recently.
 
The first team to 14 points has a very legitimate chance at winning this affair. The 2017 Outback Bowl may not be the most high-scoring affair among bowl games this season, but it will be the most attractive game for folks who are interested in watching defenses work their magic.
