This game could be the national championship based on the way the teams have played later on. The two coaches in Pete Carroll and Bob Stoops are two of the biggest big game coaches so these coaches will be prepared to play. USC has John David Booty and Oklahoma is led by Sam Bradford. The location of the Bowl game will benefit Oklahoma with the game being in Dallas.
The defense that USC has will be one that Oklahoma has not seen all year and this could cause problems for Oklahoma. This game will definitely be better then the 2004 National Title game when USC crushed Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl. Expect Oklahoma to pull this one out because their defense is much better in what USC can line up. This will be a close game but OU has the home field and a better defense that can slow USC.
