College football's regular season has just one game remaining, with Army and Navy squaring off in their annual matchup on Saturday, but bowl games don't wait for the troops to play before announcing the full bowl schedule.
"Obviously, Michigan is going to be a huge challenge", Mullen said. You see they can come at you from every level of the defense and have great players that can make great plays at each level of the defense. "My expectations of the program are really, really high".
MI is led by a top-15 defense and quarterback Shea Patterson, the Ole Miss transfer who played against Mullen in the 2016 Egg Bowl. BYU is headed to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl to face Western Michigan on December 21 at 2 p.m. MST (ESPN) at Albertsons Stadium in Boise, Idaho.
The Gators have never beaten MI and are 0-3 against the Wolverines in bowl games. "It's a lot we can build off of".
"With all the meetings I have had I think everyone plans on playing in the game", explained the Gators head coach. "We have a showdown between two storied programs that have combined for 14 National Championships, 50 conference championships and six Heisman Trophy winners".

If you're looking for someone to blame for the UF-UCF matchup not coming to fruition, blame the playoff committee. This will be Harbaugh's second trip to a New Year's Six game; his Wolverines lost to Florida State in the 2016 Orange Bowl.
Question: Do you really think Florida fans are going to be ultra-excited about seeing the Gators play MI yet again? "We know it is a first-class event and are gratified for the opportunity and to play on the famous blue turf".
"I'm just thrilled to be in a New Year's Six bowl".
There are 39 total bowl games being played this year in college football with games starting December 15. "I don't care who it was; they could roll out Notre Dame, Clemson, Oklahoma, Alabama; we're going to show up ready to go play".
I'm certainly going to take Stricklin at his word because I would hate to think the alternative is true.
