I have to admit that I was quite impressed, and gained new found respect, for Utah after their manhandling of Alabama.
And I say the same for Ol' Miss too. Not only did they beat Florida, but even in their four losses, to quality teams, they played them tough.
The Oklahoma-Florida game is not going to be a low scoring affair IMO. I wish it was played in a more "neutral" site other then in Florida though. C'est la vie!
Two very good QBs, and two very high-powered offenses, matched up in this one. I can easily see 70+ pts total, maybe even more then 80, being scored in this one. It's gonna be a race IMO.
Offensively - Oklahoma is superior to Florida. And that is not saying Florida is a slouch. Defensively - Florida is the only one that has a semblance of possessing one.
But I don't believe the Gator's defense can contain Iglesias, Gresham, Johnson, and Broyles. I don't see where they've faced an offense even remotely similar to the Sooner's. The loss of Murray hurts the Sooners, but I think Brown and Bradford will pick up the slack. They are just that talented IMO.
I'm not going to take an Oklahoma team lightly that scored at least 58 points in each of its last six games, winning by an average of 33.3 points. I also remember throughout the course of the season where Texas Tech and Oklahoma State were touted as a couple of the best teams in the country, and both got POUNDED by Oklahoma.
When I look at Florida's schedule, I'm just not as impressed by their wins and opponents. A good, sound football team for sure; but there is something about them that I just can't put my finger on.
I say the Sooners win...45-38
And have I mentioned I don't like Urban Meyers.
