Following Oklahoma’s sixth consecutive Big 12 championship game victory on Saturday it was widely assumed that they would be playing in the Cotton Bowl but the opponent wasn’t certain yet. Now, we know that the Sooners will be facing S.E.C. runner up Florida in Arlington, Texas.
The Gators went toe-to-toe with Alabama in the S.E.C. championship game, falling by a final score of 52-46. Finishing the season at 8-3, Florida is ranked 11th nationally in scoring at 41.6 points per game and 67th in scoring defense with an average of 28.6 points allowed per game.
Kickoff for the Cotton Bowl is set for 7:00 PM (Central) on December 30th.
