The Michigan Wolverines are looking to end the 2018 season on the right note, as they'll meet the Florida Gators in the Peach Bowl.

Once the Wolverines fell out of contention for the College Football Playoff, the expectation around the country was that several stars would sit out for this upcoming game. Although Rashan Gary, Devin Bush and Karan Higdon are all starting their draft preparation from now, other impact players will be suiting up tomorrow.

Despite needing surgery down the road, senior standout Chase Winovich will represent Michigan one last time. The talented pass rusher has been the heart and soul of the defense for the past two seasons.

As for the offensive side of the football, the Wolverines will have Shea Patterson under center.

Patterson made his draft decision official last week, as he'll return to Ann Arbor for his senior campaign. He'll have another shot at competing for the national title in 2019.

Jim Harbaugh will definitely have his group focused with an 11-win season in his sights.

Regardless of all the buzz that he's generating from the NFL, Harbaugh's priority should be snapping the program's recent skid in bowl games.

The Gators are putting the finishing touches on an impressive season under Dan Mullen.

With the defense playing excellent football this year, the majority of the pressure has fallen upon the arm of Feleipe Franks. He'll need to keep pace with Patterson on Saturday, if he wants to end the season with a victory.

This will be the third showdown between the two programs in the last four years.

Kickoff is set for noon ET from Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The game will be on ESPN. Bob Wischusen, Brock Huard, and Allison Williams will be on the call.
