No. 6 Florida takes on Virginia in the Orange Bowl on Monday, with the underdog Cavaliers (9-4, 6-3 ACC) looking to spoil the Gators’ (10-2, 6-2 SEC) attempt at an 11-win season.
Virginia won the ACC Coastal Division after beating in-state rival Virginia Tech for the first time since 2003. The week after the signature win, though, the Cavs were humbled 62-17 by Clemson in the ACC title game. That was good enough to earn them an Orange Bowl berth, however.
Florida, meanwhile, cruised into the Orange Bowl with three consecutive blowout victories over unranked opponents. The Gators’ only losses this season were against top-10 teams in then-No. 5 LSU and then-No. 8 Georgia.
Monday’s matchup provides an opportunity for Virginia to pull off an upset and deliver the ACC its first Orange Bowl win since Florida State in 2016. On the opposite sideline, Florida will look to pick up Dan Mullen’s second bowl victory in two seasons in Gainesville.
