Championship Preview, Part 3: Prediction

Short and sweet:

Florida 42, Oklahoma 38.

UF's offense runs up and down the field on Oklahoma's defense, avoiding turnovers and ripping big gains with Percy Harvin, Jeff Demps, Chris Rainey and Tim Tebow. Florida's defense largely shuts down OU's running game, leaving Oklahoma one-dimensional. It's a great dimension, and Sam Bradford will have a lot of success throwing against Florida's young secondary. But ultimately, the Gators will make just enough stops, the special teams unit will make two or three big plays and Florida will pull out a game for the ages.
