Opening Gasparilla Bowl Odds
The Gasparilla Bowl isn't anything new for the Knights, who have played in the annual showing four times. They're 2-2 in those four games so far, beating Marshall, 48-25, in their last appearance back in 2019.
Meanwhile, the 2021 Gasparilla Bowl will be the Gators' first appearance. Florida has lost four of their last six games this season, so the upcoming meeting with UCF gives the school a chance to end the year on a high note.
The upcoming matchup will be the third time that the Gators and Knights have met, with the most recent time coming in 2006. Florida has won both of the previous meetings, outscoring UCF, 100-27, in the process.
The 2021 Gasparilla Bowl will take place at 7 p.m. EST on Thursday, Dec. 23 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL.
