The 2018 Peach Bowl is set, with two East division runners-up set to meet. Michigan gets the nod from the Big Ten, and will be taking on Florida from the SEC.

Had Michigan been able to take down Ohio State to end the regular season, it’s likely that the Wolverines would be looking at a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Instead, this game will mark the third time these teams have met in as many years. Michigan has won the previous two meetings, including a 41-7 victory in the 2016 Citrus Bowl.

Michigan opened as a 7.5-point favorite in the Peach Bowl.

How Michigan Reached the Peach Bowl

Following a loss to Notre Dame to start the year, Michigan’s playoff chances looked bleak. But by knocking off their next 10 opponents, the Wolverines were poised for a playoff berth entering their Week 13 matchup with Ohio State.

A 62-39 loss, however, ended their win streak and squashed all hope for a national title.

How Florida Reached the Peach Bowl

Unranked to begin the year, the Gators’ season got off to a rocky start with a Week 2 loss to Kentucky. Of course, that loss ended up looking much better as the season progressed.

Florida added a few high-profile wins by knocking off Mississippi State and LSU in back-to-back weeks, and its 2018 season ultimately exceeded expectations.
