Be sure to turn on your TV tonight to watch the Gators play Ohio State for the 2006 National Championship! We will be watching to see if the Gators can beat the odds and take home their second National Championship. After all, Boise State beat Oklahoma so Florida beating Ohio State wouldn’t be the biggest suprise of the year.
Here’s our predictions:
Chris: Florida 24 – Ohio State 14
Sandra: Florida 28 – Ohio State 17
Here’s a fun fact for you guys as well. Back in 1996 when Florida played Florida State in the Sugar Bowl, I remember quite clearly that we were walking down Royal Street in New Orleans yelling “Buckeye!” before the game because Ohio State had knocked off the only other team that would have had a claim to the National Championship which set Florida up for the title if they won. They did, 52 – 20, which makes this game a little more fun because the team that set Florida up for the 1996 National Championship is now their opponent for the 2006 National Championship!
