Florida Gators

The Championship game started off with Ohio State running the kickoff back for a touchdown. The following series by the Florida Gators drove it up the field for a touchdown to tie the game. On Florida’s next series they again drove up the field and got a 4 yard TD run to take the lead 14-7. The quarter ended with the Gators on the 2 yard line.

Four seconds into the 2nd quarter, Florida ran it in for another TD leading 21-7. A little over a minute later Ohio State scored with an 18 yard TD run to make it 21-14. Their next chance, the Gators were forced to kick a field goal. Ohio on their next series made a bad call to go for it on 4th and 1 on their own 28 yard line. After the Gators got the ball back they were stopped and had to kick another FG to make the score 27-14. With 1:28 left in the half, the Gator defense knocked the ball out of the Heisman Trophy winner, Troy Smith, and recovered the ball on the five yard line. Florida took the lead by faking the QB run and throwing it for the TD. Just before the half with 16 seconds left, Ohio ran a play up the middle and with 2 seconds remaining there was a penalty giving Ohio another chance to bring the score closer but they failed to do so. By the half, with the score 34-14 the Florida Gators had scored on six of their seven possessions.

The only thing to say about the 3rd quarter is that the Florida Defense was amazing. There were no points scored all quarter keeping the score 34-14 Florida. Florida scored one more time making the final score 41-14
