M ichigan and Florida have met twice in postseason play, and both times U-M has proven victori- ous, beating the Gators 38-30 in the 2003 Outback Bowl and 41-35 in the 2008 Capital One Bowl. Ahead of their 2017 season-opening matchup in Arlington, Texas, the two foes will meet in this year's Jan. 1 Citrus Bowl (1 p.m. ET). "Having this be my last year, it means a lot to be going to a bowl," fifth-year senior center Graham Glasgow said. "I get to go and have one more opportunity to play with my teammates, and get Coach [Jim] Harbaugh and this team to 10 wins. "That's something we'll be very enthusiastic about it — let's go get this 10th win." Michigan last won 10 games in 2011 — going 11-2, including a Sugar Bowl win over Virginia Tech. Since 2000, the Wolverines also won 10 games or more in 2002 (10-3), 2003 (10-3) and 2006 (11-2).   MICHIGAN FOOTBALL Michigan To Meet Florida In Citrus Bowl Wideout Adrian Arrington hauled in nine receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns to help U-M top Florida 41-35 in the 2008 Capital One Bowl, which is now called the Citrus Bowl.
