used wrinkles like an odd-man front and a zone blitz to keep the Gators off balance. Florida had 11 possessions; it scored three touchdowns and kicked one field goal.

Special teams


You figured the kicking game might be OU's downfall. Not so. Other than a blocked field goal which might never should have been tried (a 49-yarder), the Sooner special teams were solid.

Pass protection


Bradford was sacked twice and flushed from the pocket at times, but OU was playing Florida, so some of that was to be expected.

Open-field tackling


Florida had two primary modes of offense. Tim Tebow scrambles and getting its jet-like scatbacks in space. Percy Harvin in particular turned the Sooners in circles on plays of 52, 46 and 19 yards.
