OU
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

B

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

B

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

D

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.
