The 2020 Cotton Bowl pits a young Oklahoma offense against the much maligned Florida defense.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler should have plenty of chances to take shots downfield, as the Gators enter with the no. 97 ranked passing defense, allowing 258.3 passing yards per game.
The Sooners passing attack has been up and down all season long, often showing flashes of the explosive offense we’ve come to expect under Riley and quarter-long dry spells within the same game.
Led by First Team All-SEC defensive back Kaiir Elam, Florida will look to blanket Oklahoma’s young wide receiving core. Elam and safety Shawn Davis lead the Gators with two interceptions on the year apiece, but they’ll have to deal with a near-full strength group of wide receivers for the Sooners.
