#4 - Oregon State beats Florida 30-3 in the Las Vegas Bowl

The result in the Las Vegas Bowl was predictable as the Gators had a ton of players opt-out and, as a result, looked lifeless in Vegas. Only a last-minute field goal saved Florida the embarrassment of being shut out.

This is where FSU fans should take warning from Florida as the backups that were forced into action in Vegas were, for the most part, the starters the Gators fielded in 2023.

And how did that work out?

5-7, no bowl game, and Billy Napier is in the hot seat.

But at least we got DJ Lagway coming to town.
