The 2000 Citrus Bowl was a college football bowl game following the 1999-2000 football season. The game matched the Michigan State against the Florida Gators.

Michigan State came into the game with interim coach Bobby Williams, who took over on December 5, five days after Nick Saban departed to take over the Louisiana State program.

Michigan State wide receiver Plaxico Burress caught a career-high 13 passes for 185 yards and three touchdowns and Paul Edinger kicked a 35-yard field goal as time expired to lead the ninth-ranked Spartans to a 37-34 victory over the No. 10 Gators. Williams was later hired as the head coach of the Spartans.
