Here’s a quick look at what OU and Florida players have had to say about tonight’s game:

"It’s starting to bear down on me. It's been like a month, it seems like a year though. It’s finally here man, we’re just ready. The national championship, if you can’t get high for this game, you better check your pulse.”


Oklahoma right tackle Trent Williams

"We see that they’re a fast team and all, but we got speed, too. We just got to prepare for this and hope we’re prepared. You can tell on film they’re a fast and quick team, but hopefully we can prepare for that, I mean we have to prepare for that. We’ll just go in there and see how it is.”

— Oklahoma defensive end Jeremy Beal

"For every player they have, I think we have someone who can line up with them and match their speed.”

— Florida wide receiver Louis Murphy

"The keys to winning are probably winning the turnover battle. We have to go out there and execute and manage and win the turnover battle. I think we’re going up against a great defense, so we’re going to have to execute.”

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow
