Cotton Bowl matchup: Oklahoma defense v. Florida offense

Cotton Bowl matchup: Oklahoma defense v. Florida offense

For the second straight season, Alex Grinch’s Oklahoma defense heads into Bowl season staring down the nation’s most explosive passing offense. 

With Heisman Trophy finalist Kyle Trask pulling the strings, Dan Mullen’s Gators are passing for an eye-popping 388.4 yards per game this season. Completing almost 70 percent of his passes, Trask has thrown for 4,125 yards and 43 touchdowns this season while only surrendering five interceptions.

Oklahoma’s secondary will have their hands full against Florida, and they will be down a man.
