OU football fans travel along I-75 from Fort Myers to the Miami area. By Bryan Terry, The Oklahoman
The Oklahoman’s photography crew touched down in Florida yesterday to cover today’s BCS National Championship game between OU and Florida. For the trip we’ve brought three still photographers, Bryan Terry, Chris Landsberger, and myself, along with videographer Damon Fontenot. We ended up flying into Fort Myers and then driving across Alligator Alley on I-75 for two hours to get to the Miami area. I was disappointed that I did not see any actual alligators. Maybe we’ll get lucky tomorrow on the drive back to the airport. Yesterday it was overcast and raining. So far today the weather is sunny and beautiful.
I have photographed every OU bowl game since 2002. After the last couple of Fiesta Bowls, I hope the team can win this one. As I’ve written before, I think a winning team makes better photos. And everybody back home will be a lot happier if the Sooners get their 8th national title. I will update this blog with photos of fans before the game and then will have another update from the game after it is all over.
