Now, it could be argued that the defenses in the Big XII just look so bad because of the caliber of the offenses they face. This is a legitimate point. However, look what Ohio State's defense did to Texas' offense.
So what does this mean? Well for one, it means that the Big XII offenses, when they come up against defenses from other conferences, face legitimate challenges and have been held in check. Florida's defense might be one of the best out there this year, and they will be able to match Oklahoma's offense in the speed department.
On the other side of the ball, not much has been made of Oklahoma's defense because there hasn't been much to make. Florida's offense is not far behind Oklahoma's in the production department, ranking third in the nation in scoring, despite facing a much more daunting schedule of defenses.
Ian's Prediction: In the end, I see Florida winning this game by a hair. I believe a second-quarter turnover will be the difference that allows Florida to go up by two scores. The teams will continue to trade scores the rest of the game with Oklahoma scoring with under a minute to play to bring the game close. Florida recovers the onsides kick and seals the deal.
