As the stadiums open for the college football playoffs we only hope that the sports fans will come out to motivate their favorites.
These college football playoff matches include the number one ranked team against the number four and two, against number three in the semi-final games. These rotate annually-from the Goodyear Cotton Bowl, Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, Rose Bowl Game, Allstate Sugar Bowl, and Capital One Orange Bowl. On Friday, the season’s semi-finals playoffs kick off on New Year’s Eve at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl and the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 31, 2021.
Goodyear Cotton Bowl
The Sooners have 8.5-point favorites. And this came from the latest Oklahoma againstFlorida, and the odds are from William Hill Sportsbook. The total points scored for over-under is 64.5.
The great matchups of Florida Gators No.7 against Oklahoma Sooners are the 85th Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classics. The two face each other on Wednesday. It will mark their second meeting in the AT&T Stadium. When they met in 2009 in Miami for the National Championship, the Gators edged the Sooners, 24-14.
Bry Patton, the chairman of Cotton Bowl Athletic Association, said he was thrilled to have these two teams, Florida and Oklahoma, in the 85th Classic. As we all know, the 2020 college football playoffs season presented a lot of obstacles. Everyone, including players and coaches, has had a tough and challenging season, and they deserve recognition for making it through.
It will be Sooner’s third appearance in the Classic and first since 2013. First Oklahoma’s Classic appearance in 2002, they got a victory over Arkansas of 10-3. And in the Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship at AT&T Stadium, Oklahoma earned a 27-21 win against Iowa State. Sooners secured the title of the 50th football conference title.
Oklahoma freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler leads this team. The Phoenix is in the ninth position nationally, having 2784 passing yards. They also tied for the eighth rank nationally, having 25 passing touchdowns.
Gators: They are also making their first appearance in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl. They are just coming off a 52-46 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship in Atlanta. It is Florida’s 46th bowl appearance, at 8-3 in SEC play. Gators edged Virginia, 36 – 28, in the Capital One Orange Bowl last year.
Heisman contender of Florida Kyle Trask leads the team. He reached for 408 yards and three numbers over the Crimson Tide in the SEC Football Championship Game. Trask is in No. 1 nationally in passing yards (4,125) and (43) in passing touchdowns.
The Orange Bowl
In the latest Texas A&M against North Carolina, the odds from William Hill Sportsbook, the Aggies had 9.5-point, being favorites. They rose at 3.5 points from the opening line. And 65 Over-Under for the total points scored.
The Aggies have posted four school-best straight bowl victories starting from 2011-14. That was before they lost their subsequent three appearances. They triumphed over NC State with 52-13 in the 2018 Gator Bowl and beat the Oklahoma State with 24-21 in the Texas Bowl last year.
As Aggies are at fifth-ranking, they look forward to making three in a row if they take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. They will have their answer on Saturday in the 2021 Orange Bowl. And the kickoff will take place in the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Fla.
