Flordia 30, Iowa 3

Austin Appleby threw for 222 yards and 2 touchdowns, helping Florida end their two-game losing streak and finish their season on a positive note. However, it does suck for Iowa; this is their fifth straight bowl loss.

Florida had 2 turnovers in the first quarter, but all Iowa had to show for it was a field goal. The first quarter was extremely slow; the score was tied at 3. At the end of the first quarter Florida had a last minute 1st down that gave them some much needed confidence. Florida went through this game missing their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th string tacklers, but you wouldn’t have known it by the way their defense was holding  up Iowa.

*I’d just like to add that Florida ended their season with the same record as the Tennessee Vols. 9-4     Image result for tennessee t
