To steal a quote from Colonel Sink right before the invasion of Europe; "Tonight is the night of nights". The waiting is over as the BCS National Championship Game between Florida and Oklahoma will kick off from Miami, a little after 8pm EST on Fox.
Although some people don't think that this game is the Championship game, that it was already decided when Utah beat Alabama; I refuse to be that rebel because I believe in the BCS. Plus I also can't take a guy seriously who still thinks Pacific still has a College Football team. Thanks to Dr. Saturday for pointing out that blunder.
A group of fans will go home from Miami dejected and disappointed, come tomorrow if they were caught crying on camera they will probably be ridiculed by Spencer in Friday's Curious Index, especially if they are a Sooners fan. I have already given my prediction on who I think will win; I think Florida has a decided advantage in the Special Teams aspect, I think their quick defensive line will not allow Bradford to sit in the pocket like he is use to, and I don't think the Sooners will be able to stop the Gators.
For the Sooners to win they have to establish the run to keep the Gators off balance and use their weapons at wide receiver and tight end to find holes in the Florida secondary. The Gators haven't faced a passing attack like the Sooners this year so it will be a test for their secondary.
If you haven't already got enough pregame material; below are some good previews to check out. Enjoy the game everyone, savor it because we don't have another one for 9 months.
