Citrus Bowl Prediction

The Hawkeyes have won four of their last five bowl games, including a 21-0 shutout of Kentucky in the 2022 Music City Bowl. Iowa is 18-16-1 all-time in bowl games. The Hawkeyes are 1-2 against the Volunteers in program history. Tennessee won the only bowl meeting, winning 45-28 in the 2015 TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville. In this situation, Iowa is getting the more favorable price.

Citrus Bowl Format

The Citrus Bowl currently features schools from the Big Ten and the SEC. This game takes place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. This bowl began in 1947 as the Tangerine Bowl until 1982, when it was called the Florida Citrus Bowl. It was then known as the Capital One Bowl from 2003 through 2014.

The SEC has captured this bowl in nine of the past ten years. Georgia has had the most appearances in this bowl with six, and it's gone 4-1-1 in those games. Along with the Bulldogs, Tennessee is the only other school to win this bowl game more than four times.

Alabama defeated Michigan 35-10 in the 2019 edition, the third Citrus Bowl win for the SEC school.

In 2021, the Big Ten scored a 35-19 win by Northwestern over Auburn. But in 2022, Kentucky scored revenge for the SEC with a 20-17 victory over Iowa as the 'under' cashed. The 'under' is now 4-2 across the past six Citrus Bowls.

Previously, Oklahoma State won a thriller over Miami-FL 37-34. As it turned out, the win was a springboard to the Pokes' big year in 2021. In comparison, it was also a portent of the firing to come for Miami and coach Manny Diaz.

Originally titled the Blockbuster Bowl and sponsored by CarQuest and Micron PC, the game was born in Miami in 1990 and thrived in its first year with a marquee matchup between Penn State and Florida State, which drew more than 74,000 fans. Over the next 11 years, however, the game’s attendance declined, and it became apparent that it would not survive in South Florida.

Sensing a unique opportunity to bring a second bowl game to Orlando, the Florida Citrus Sports Board of Directors initiated a process of obtaining the bowl’s certification. In 2001, the bowl changed hands and was relocated to Orlando. In a tribute to Orlando’s original bowl game, the first contest was called the Tangerine Bowl with Pittsburgh, in its only appearance to date, knocking off NC State.
