After the Wolverines fell to Ohio State in the season finale, seven of the eight media members have Michigan appearing in their fifth Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl. The five appearances would tie Penn State for most appearances by a Big Ten team.
The media has Michigan facing off against three different opponents. The first, Ole Miss, would be making its first Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl appearance.
Four members have Michigan facing off against Florida which would be a rematch of the 2008 Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl that featured Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr’s last game as coach and Florida’s Tim Tebow.
Bill Bender of SportingNews has Michigan the LSU Tigers, who would be making its fourth Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl appearance.
Northwestern, the other Big Ten projection, would be making its second Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl appearance, first since 1997.
