Usually the six New Years batteries that feature teams from outside looking at the four-team soccer stadium end up providing more excitement during pot season. That may be the case again this season, and the Cotton Bowl is among # 6 Oklahoma And number 7 Florida It could become the best game for them all because it brings together two teams who must be a great match for each other. The Sooners are one of the hottest teams in college football, having won seven teams in a row and have the top 10 defense over the past two months. Meanwhile, the Gators have the nation’s best passing attack with weapons across the field.
Oklahoma is looking for its first post-season win since the 2017 Sugar Bowl against it Auburn. He quickly reached the semi-finals of the semi-finals for the past three years but lost each time. Florida will be hoping to secure its third successive victory under coach Dan Mullen, as well as finish its third consecutive season in the top ten in the classification at the end of the season.
Surprisingly, these two historically related programs met only once before this rivalry. It was in 2009 when Tim Tipo and Urban Mayer led the Gators to their last national championships over Sam Bradford and Bob Stopes at Orange Bowl. Will the Gators take another win over the Texas Sunners? Let’s take a closer look at the matches and stories to follow before making some of the experts’ picks head-to-head and against a spread.
Florida: Unsubscribing was a big part of the 2020 season, both in the regular season and in bowl games. You could argue that no individual withdrawal is greater for the team than the narrow end Kyle Bates. In only eight games, Bates received 770 yards – an average of about 100 yards per game and 18 yards per shot – and 12 drops. It was the textbook definition of a mismatch of defenses. He has the chance to be a high pick in the NFL first round, however, his decision to leave early and skip the bowl made sense. Tony Cadarius It showed up as a legit WR1, but it came out, too. So is Trifon Grimes and Jacob Copeland. Who will be influencing this game?
Oklahoma: The Sooners’ defense becomes strong in the second half of the season, but Florida will be by far the hardest attack they have faced. Oklahoma has a good balance of passing rush and defenders Ronnie Perkins And the Isaiah ThomasTogether with the full-back Nick Bonito. In the back end, my defense came out Trey Brown And the Brendan Radley Hills They play tight coverage. Defense coordinator Alex Grinch did a great job turning the corner with this defense. Slow down the Florida Elite Passing Attack and press middle Kyle Trask It will be the key to victory.

Florida Gators +8.5
Florida around the favorite field goal. The true test of whether Oklahoma can win is whether its defense is up to the challenge. Offensively, Oklahoma is still good, but a little less consistent than it was last year. Back to back Ramunder Stephenson Going will be critical in controlling the game.
