Man in motion
LB Brandon Spikes, Gators:
A big and rugged linebacker, Spikes is Florida’s spiritual and physical leader. He was at the epicenter of this week’s trash talking, rallying to Tebow’s rescue when Dom Franks suggested the Florida quarterback would fit in some ways down the Big 12 depth chart. Expect Spikes to be involved in blitz packages aimed at making OU quarterback Sam Bradford, shall we say, uncomfortable.
WR Quentin Chaney, Sooners:
It’s bowl season, isn’t it? Chaney has been OU’s best receiver in the past two Fiesta Bowls, rising up when the passing game needed a playmaker. He might not be Bradford’s primary focus – the Sooners are in trouble if he is. Still, never count him out.
DT DeMarcus Granger and RB DeMarco Murray, OU:
Two straight postseasons.
