Slowly but surely we're beginning to learn about which teams will be going where for bowl season, and from what we've learned so far, the most interesting storyline of the non-BCS bowls may be taking place in Jacksonville on January 2nd. The Taxslayer.com (METAL) Gator Bowl announced on Sunday evening that Ohio State will be facing off with Florida.

In other words, it's Urban Meyer's old team versus Urban Meyer's new team. Though he'll be coaching neither in the game.

The Ohio State Buckeyes finished the regular season at 6-6 and 3-5 in the Big Ten, good enough for eighth place in the conference following a tumultuous offseason that saw players suspended and head coach Jim Tressel fired.

Meanwhile, Florida also finished the season at 6-6 with a 3-5 mark in the SEC, which put the Gators in seventh in the conference in their first year under Will Muschamp.

All of which means that two teams who didn't even finish the year with a winning record get to play in what is traditionally a New Year's Day bowl game. The bowl system everybody!
