The bowl might not be epic and the current teams might not be elite, but at least we're finally getting to a place in bowl season where the names are top notch. Florida State was a sexy early season pick to be in national title contention, but that came to a grinding halt after they dropped three of their first five games. They righted the ship eventually though and won six of their last seven including a win over archrival Florida to finish the regular season. They're fourth in the nation in scoring defense only allowing 15.2 points per contest. Lou Holtz was, of course, touting the virtues of Notre Dame football on TV last night and more or less guaranteed that they'd win, which of course means Florida State should have this in the bag. Florida State is a 3.5 point favorite.
