ESPN will host the broadcast for the 2021 Gasparilla Bowl matchup between the UCF Golden Knights and the Florida Gators. The game is set for Thursday, December 23rd at 7:00 p.m. ET.
UCF (8-4, 5-3 AAC) did not quite live up to the high standards this program set for themselves over the years, but this was their first season in a new system under Gus Malzahn. Florida (6-6, 2-6 SEC) needed a win over the Florida State Seminoles in the regular season finale to qualify for a bowl game, and they will close out their 2021 and look forward to life under Billy Napier, who is replacing Dan Mullen.
If you aren’t around a TV to watch the Gasparilla Bowl, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app if you have a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable log-in, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the primetime game.
