Sweet 16 - Wisconsin

If Florida pulled off the upset and made it to the Sweet 16, the potential three seeds they would face are teams that the Gators might feel okay about.

Florida has taken Baylor and Alabama to the wire while Kansas has also been a vulnerable team.

But a potential six seed that could be looming if they themselves pull off an upset is Wisconsin, and like North Carolina they are not a great matchup for the Gators.

The Badgers are 10th in the country at defensive rebounding, grabbing 78.8% of opponent misses.

While we all know what happened last time Florida and Wisconsin met in the Sweet 16 in 2017, we're not convinced the Gators would want to press their luck a second time.
