Outback Bowl 2011 features the Florida Gators and Penn State Nittany Lions, two teams that have not lived up to lofty expectations this season.
The Gators started the season ranked No. 4 in the country and won their first four games on the schedule; however, as the opponents got better, the losses piled up. Struggling offensively, they have scored less than 13 points a game in their five losses this season.
In their last eight games, Florida has just three wins. The Gators have particularly struggled against ranked opponents with zero wins and four losses against teams in the top 25.
Florida needs to win the 2011 Outback Bowl in order to build some momentum and salvage what has been a disappointing 2010 season.
