Michigan stunned ninth-ranked Florida to end Lloyd Carr's reign as Wolverines coach on a winning note.
Chad Henne threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns, while Mike
Hart ran for 129 yards and a pair of scores.
It was the first bowl victory in four tries for Michigan's senior class.
The defending national champion Gators made it a close game thanks to four turnovers and big plays by Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and the running of Percy Harvin.
Michigan ends a 9-and-4 season that began with the embarrassing
upset loss to Appalachian State.
Florida also finishes with a 9-and-4 record.
