Urban Renewal Headed to the BCS Championship Game

SEC Championship Game
Florida 38 Arkansas 28

The Florida Gators found out at halftime of USC’s loss and then took matters into their owns hands by defeating the Arkansas Razorbacks for their first conference title since 2000. Percy Harvin scored twice (one run, one pass) and the defense and special teams came up big with a fumble recovery in the end zone on a punt and a game-clinching interception. Florida held Darren McFadden in check for much of the game not allowing the speedster to get loose many times. Florida’s offense scored more than 28 for the first time since September.

In just his second season, Urban Meyer has led Florida to a BCS Championship Berth against Ohio State. The Gators survived a brutal conference schedule and did enough in the pollsters’ eyes to jump Michigan for the number two spot. Chris Leak finally got his signature win and did it with out having to look over at his shoulder much at Tim Tebow in this game. Arkansas will have to bounce back for the Capital One Bowl versus Wisconsin after two close defeats at the hand of two of the best teams in the conference – LSU and Florida.
