6-5 Florida faces 8-4 East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl this afternoon. This could easily be strength versus strength with The Pirates air attack against the stingy secondary of Florida. Both are trying to cap off disappointing seasons. The Gators are between coaches with D.J. Durkin guiding the team for this bowl. New Head coach Jim McElwain will be watching as he continues to make preparations for the upcoming season.
Wide receiver Justin Hardy is one of our favorite wideouts who will certainly have a good NFL career. Hardy will finish his career with the most receptions in College Football and will be difficult to contain. East Carolina wins but in a closer contest that most predict.
