The Oklahoma Sooners are making a remarkable sixth straight New Year's Six Bowl. Even Alabama hasn't done that as they played Michigan last year in the Citrus Bowl. The Florida Gators are no slouches in their own right as they are making their third consecutive NY6 game. This year the Cotton Bowl will feature the Big 12 champs and the SEC runner ups. That definitely gives you an idea that the the College Football selection committee views the SEC as a much more difficult conference. Rightfully so.

But the Sooners will by no-means be pushovers in this game. After a rough start to the season losing back-to-back games against Kansas State and Iowa State in the first three weeks, they turned it all around in a four-overtime win against the Texas Longhorns. Quarterback Spencer Rattler was benched in that game after two first-half turnovers in a game the Sooners needed to get their season back on track.

Rattler called it a "timeout" but whatever you want to call it, it reset him and he has been on a tear since. He is ranked in the top 10 in both yards and touchdowns this season. The Sooners haven't lost since that reset and the most exciting thing for Oklahoma is that Rattler is just a freshman. This team is going to be good for quite some time to come and they have a great opportunity to extend their NY6 streak.

Rattler looked especially impressive protecting the ball in the Big-12 Championship against Iowa State. The Sooners have won the Big 12 Championship since it was reintroduced in 2017.  Their offense hasn't been as explosive as in year's past with Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts. They looked good in the championship but their offense slowed and let Iowa State back in the game. Rattler will need to take that momentum from that championship win into this matchup because this Sooner team loses when Rattler gets rattled.

The Sooners are going to have to keep their foot on the petal if they're going to keep up with Florida. They have a true air-raid offense and made a tremendous comeback against No. 1 Alabama losing the SEC Championship 52-46, a game they were more than 17-point underdogs in. This team is led by two Kyles. Quarterback Kyle Trask ranks first in the nation in yards (4,125) and touchdowns (43). He will utilize his favorite target tight end Kyle Pitts who is a sure fire first rounder in next year's draft.

This is the best team Dan Mullen has coached since he came over from Mississippi State three years ago. Sure, the Gators only lost two games a year ago and made the Orange Bowl, but this was the first time they were definitely the best team in the SEC East and were pretty much the only team to keep it competitive with Alabama this season. Mullen has built the foundation, especially with this explosive offense. In the coming year, Mullen has the best opportunity to bring a championship back to Gainesville since he was the offensive coordinator for the Gators in 2008. Both team's futures are blindingly bright.
