It’s officially Bowl Season! Mizzou won their 6th game on the final week of the season and clinched bowl eligibility. Despite some hubbub, prior to the announcment, the program wanted to get into a Bowl Game before Christmas, and they got their wish when they were selected to play in the Union Home Mortgage Gasparilla Bowl in Tampa, Florida on December 23rd.
If you’re not super familiar with the Gasparilla Bowl, well, it’s time for a history lesson because this Bowl dates all the way back to... 2008. In 2008 the Magicjack St. Petersburg Bowl was formed and saw the University of South Florida face off against Memphis at Tropicana Field in St. Pete. The Bulls ran away with the game 41-14 led by Matt Grothe at Quarterback.
The Bowl naming rights were changed to the St. Petersburg Bowl Presented by Beef ‘O’ Brady’s in 2009, and the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl from 2010 to 2013. Paging @3YearLetterman. Then in 2014 the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl, to just to the St. Petersburg Bowl through 2016 before getting sponsorship from Bad Boy Mowers and changing to the Gasparilla Bowl and moving to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. In 2020 Union Home Mortgage took over sponsorship and has held on for the last three games, including 2020’s canceled game between South Carolina and UAB.
Last year Gus Malzahn’s UCF Knights defeated an interim coach led Florida team, 29-17. But both Dave Clawson and Eli Drinkwitz look to be firmly in trenched at their respective schools.
