Urban Meyer will have a dilemma during this bowl season: should he root for his beloved Florida Gators, the team he led to two national championships, or should he root for the Ohio State Buckeyes, the team he will resume his coaching career with?

Now, he has to make that decision.

According to WBNS-10TV, Ohio State will square off against Florida in the Gator Bowl on January 2.

Neither team is ranked, and both teams have a 6-6 record.

Though Meyer will not coach the Buckeyes for the bowl game, he will most likely be seen on the sidelines as a "special guest."

Kickoff will be a 1 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN2.
