January 8th will be the match between the Florida Gators and Oklahoma Sooners. There's already been some trash talking by the Sooners defensive back about Tim Tebow.

This should be a very entertaining game, but the Gators and Tebow finished the season strong and I don't see them losing this game.

Thoughts?

Predictions?

From what we've seen in bowl games so far the Big 12 is pretty overrated and the defenses are terrible.

Missouri was lucky to beat Northwestern.
Nebraska was lucky to beat Clemson.
Oklahoma State lost to Oregon.
Texas Tech got manhandled by Ole Miss.
Texas needed a last second score to beat Ohio State.

I have not been impressed by Oklahoma's defense at all and I think Florida will score at will, especially since Percy Harvin will be playing.

On the other side of the ball, Oklahoma hasn't seen a defense as fast and talented as Florida's. The Gators have the athletes to match up with Oklahoma's skill players, as well as up front. I think the Sooners will be held well under their scoring average.

I see it ending up something like 45-28 in favor of Florida.

I think Oklahoma is going to take it. They seemed more fired up with adrenaline and momentum. In football, I'd take being fired up over skill.

All the upsets this year for the number 1 ranked team came from teams being fired up with momentum. That's why the number 1 rank was so slippery this year. At least that's why I observed. I hope I am not out in left field with this. haha

Every team who has one the Superbowl recently, seems to have won it on momentum. Most notable of them all was last year when the #6 seed Giants thrashed the undefeated Patriots. I didn't pee straight for a week because of that upset... I was so pissed! haha

Well both teams have a lot of momentum going into this game. They were both ridiculously dominant after their losses. The biggest thing to me is that Florida did it against tougher competition.

I will say this. I think USC would beat either of these teams right now.

Florida 31, Oklahoma 28

Now I'm not a fan of either(go Penn State!), so no bias here. I also think it's going to be a good one. Probabaly will come down to a last second FG!
