Mike Pouncey gets his wish to leave a winner



It was all senior center Mike Pouncey could talk about for the past couple of weeks: he and the Gators had to send Urban Meyer and the Florida seniors out as winners in Saturday's Outback Bowl.

Period. No discussion.

For a group of players who've struggled through a tough season after knowing the joy of winning national and SEC championships, the only redemption this year would be a victory in their final game.

Florida's 37-24 win over Penn State left Pouncey filled with joy - and a little emotional.

Here is a portion of the team captain's final postgame interview.
