Michigan Football will take on Florida Saturday in the Peach Bowl and here are five predictions for the Wolverines.

It has been a long time since Michigan football took the field. In fact, it has been over a month since the Wolverines went to Ohio State and got handed a 62-39 loss in the final game of the season.

Heading into that game, Michigan football saw itself as the Big Ten champions and maybe as the conference rep in the College Football Playoff. After all, the Wolverines had won 10 games in a row and had beaten three straight ranked opponents.

Michigan had every reason to feel good going into the Ohio State game, except when it really counted, the Wolverines got dominated. It was a rough day and after listening to the players and coaches talk about this week, Michigan hasn’t forgotten it.

The Wolverines know they wasted a big opportunity this season and while winning the Peach Bowl won’t make up for it, beating the 10th-ranked Florida Gators in a major bowl would feel much better than losing to a team everyone expects Michigan to beat.

That’s mostly because Michigan football beat Florida in the 2016 Capital One Bowl and also to start the 2017 season. But this is a different program. Dan Mullen has the Gators going in the right direction and since they weren’t expected to be here, the Gators will want to prove they belong with a win.

The Peach Bowl is the table setter for the College Football Playoff and here are three predictions.
