SPORTS: Ohio State Loses to Florida in Gator Bowl

Jacksonville, FL (WOIO) – The last time the Buckeyes saw the Florida Gators, in January of 2007, the national title was on the line.  Obviously, there wasn’t nearly as much at stake this time, but in the end, it still wasn’t much fun, as the Gators held off OSU in the Gator Bowl on Monday, 24-17.

The Gators used two special-teams touchdowns to pull away for the win:  a 99-yd kick return by Andre Debose in the second quarter, and a Graham Stewart fumble return off a blocked punt in the third quarter.

Debose’s return came seconds after DeVier Posey had pulled in a 5-yd touchdown pass from Braxton Miller early in the second quarter, temporarily tying the game at 7.

Miller hooked up with Jordan Hall with just under a minute remaining in the game to pull the Buckeyes within 7, but it was too little, too late, in Luke Fickell’s final game as interim head coach.
