To say Florida is full of distractions may been an understatement with their coach Urban Meyer retiring, their starting quarterback John Brantley may transfer, new head coach Will Muschamp who is going to override the playbook, there are rumors of Charlie Weis joining the staff as the offensive coordinator and current offensive coordinator Steve Adazio has taken the Temple head coaching job. So, Florida maybe a bit distracted in today's game.

All Penn State has on their plate is that they know Joe Paterno will be back for another year. Bowl season is typically a frustrating time for Nittany Lion fans since bowl games are when Penn State breaks away from their traditional offense and will actual open up the playbook and give false hope to fans going into the next season.

This game, at leas for me, seems to be a difficult one to make a line for, but the experts have Florida as a seven point favorite.

Rivals - All four Rivals writers yet again all agree on their pick as they take Florida. Only 63 percent of Yahoo users picked Florida to win this game.

CBS Sports- Four of the five pick Florida over Penn State.

USA Today - The eight writers are split right down the middle with four taking Florida 

Fanhouse - Brett McMurphy makes his picks by the spread and takes Florida to cover.

AccuScore - The computer takes Florida 74 percent of the time by an average score of 29.9 to 19.1 over Penn State.

ESPN Bloggers - SEC blogger Chris Low takes Florida to win 24-13 while their Big 10 counterpart Adam Rittenberg takes Penn State to win 20-17.
