On New Year's Day, Jacksonville will play host to the "Urban Meyer Bowl."

Florida (6-6) and Ohio State (6-6) will face off with the shadow of Meyer looms over an otherwise meaningless bowl game.

The TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl is the first meeting between these two squads since the Gators -- under the direction of Meyer -- throttled the Buckeyes 41-14 in the 2007 BCS Championship Game.

"We are so excited to play in front of all the Gator fans there in Jacksonville and in the state of Florida," current UF head coach Will Muschamp said.
