2011 Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl: FIU Heading To St. Petersburg

The FIU Golden Panthers are going to their second-ever bowl game, and their second in a row named after a disagreeable dinner. The Beef 'O' Brady's bowl in St. Petersburg will pair Florida International against a middling Big East team, perhaps the Pittsburgh Panthers or likewise.
