36-28 Florida- Final

36-28 Florida
The Cavaliers aren't going down without a fight as Bryce Perkins shakes off the touchdown to his offensive lineman being called back and passes it two yards two plays later to Hasise Dubois!

 

Virginia kicks the PAT to make it an eight-point game and will go for the onside kick now with less than a minute in the game remaining.

36-21 Florida
Evan McPherson's successful 42-yard field goal makes it a 15-point Gators lead as the fourth quarter winds down.
Interception- Florida
Poor read from Bryce Perkins costs the Cavaliers as he lofts a short pass up and Florida defender Kaiir Elam comes down with the interception to likely seal the game.
33-21 Florida
After Lamical Perine is ruled just barely out at the one-yard line, Kyle Trask follows it up with a one-yard quarterback run for a touchdown but the two-point conversion fails to put the Gators up 12.
27-21 Florida
Clutch play from Bryce Perkins to Joe Reed, ducking tacklers and catching and running seven yards for a huge touchdown for UVA!
That's the end of the third quarter here in Miami Gardens, Florida with the Gators leading Virginia 27-14. Fourth quarter from Hard Rock Stadium coming up next.
27-14 Florida
Huge 49-yard field goal from Evan McPherson extends the Gators' lead to 13 points!
The second half is underway and Virginia receives the ball and begins on offense!
That concludes the first half of football here in the Capital One Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida!

24-14 Florida
Lamical Perine bursts it ten yards for another touchdown run to put the Gators up ten again! McPherson's PAT is good.
17-14 Florida
Kyle Trask's potential fumble is ruled down prior to losing the ball and he leads Florida to the redzone. Trask's third down pass is almost intercepted and the Gators have to settle for a good 23-yard Evan McPherson field goal.
14-14
Incredible play from Bryce Perkins, evading loads of pressure on a blitz, hopping over a defender, and chucking  a nine-yard touchdown pass to Hasise Dubois who makes an incredible catch in the back of the end zone to tie the game!
That's the end of the first quarter here in Miami Gardens, with Florida leading 14-7 over Virginia.

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask is intercepted by Nick Grant for a huge play for the Cavaliers!

Florida Gators: Team news
After a surprise New Year's Six bowl berth and win over Michigan in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl last season to close 2018, the Florida Gators have returned to the NY6 and are in an even bigger game, just down the road in South Florida in the Orange Bowl. Despite struggling with some injuries and narrowly escaping many close games, Dan Mullen's Gators have reached double digit wins again this season and are looking to continue to improve the program's status in the SEC pecking order as they hope to become a perennial championship contender once again.

 

Florida's strength comes from its vaunted defensive front under defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, with Jabari Zuniga and Jonathan Greenard arguably the two biggest difference-makers on the Gators roster. The defensive front and Florida's traditionally strong secondary will be crucial to stopping Virginia's biggest asset, the quarterback run game with Perkins, and containing the dynamic, mobile quarterback.

Virginia Cavaliers: Team news
2019 was finally Virginia's year in the ACC Coastal as a dynamic senior quarterback in Bryce Perkins and experienced head coach Bronco Mendenhall finally put it together to win their first ACC Coastal division title and book a spot at a New Year's Six bowl game at the Orange Bowl in Miami.

 

Despite some struggles mid-season, the Cavaliers played their best game of the year to finally defeat arch-rival Virginia Tech and snap the Hokies' seemingly endless 15-game win streak in the Commonwealth Cup and a UVA win against blue blood powerhouse program Florida to win the Capital One Orange Bowl title would be icing on the cake this season and set Virginia up for even bigger potential successes in 2020 and going forward.

What to expect today?
One of the best bowls of the New Year's Six is set for Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida with the number 24 Virginia Cavaliers of the ACC facing the ninth-ranked Florida Gators from the SEC in the Capital One Orange Bowl.

 

Head coach Dan Mullen's Gators are playing a virtual home game down the road in South Florida while the Cavaliers, under head coach Bronco Mendenhall, are enjoying a historic season for the UVA program in the Orange Bowl as the ACC's representative after snapping a 15-game losing streak to arch-rivals Virginia Tech on Rivalry Weekend to close the season. 

 

Florida has enjoyed a better year than initially expected, reaching ten wins again despite losing starting quarterback Feleipe Franks early in the season. Backup quarterback Kyle Trask, while limited, has taken over the starting role well and improved the Gators' offense and will look to end 2019 on a strong note for Florida and prove they can truly contend for an SEC Championship title in 2020 next season.
