The National Championship – The Florida Gators vs. The Buffalo Bulls

The Buffalo Bulls continue their miracle season with a win over the Alabama Crimson Tide. The game was a back and forth affair that had Alabama leading late in the fourth quarter. With the game seemingly over, the Bulls mounted a three minute, 80 yard drive that put them ahead with less than 39 seconds on the clock. The Crimson Tide mounted a quick drive of their own and moved into position to kick a game-winning 23 year field goal. Mike Newton, outstanding DB for the Bulls, maneuvered around the left side untouched and blocked the kick, sending a shocked crowd of Alabama fans to the exits with just 3 seconds remaining on the clock. The final score was 30-28. Next up for the Bulls, the National Championship and another SEC powerhouse.

The Florida Gators relied on a heavy pass rush and their secondary to dismantle Colt McCoy’s much heralded passing attack. The Gators gave up a lot of yards between the twenties, but managed to pick McCoy off five times in the red zone. Meanwhile, Tebow had some troubles of his own. The Gator’s version of the wildcat formation faltered for the first time this season. It seems Superman found his kryptonite in the Texas front four. The points on this night belonged to Percy Harvin and his incredible athletic ability. Harvin had 315 total yards and four touchdowns. The final score in this one was 42-31.

So our national championship features a team that was on nobody’s radar at the beginning of the playoffs and another team that many thought had the best chance of winning the national championship.
