CHARLES DAVIS: DIFFERENCE IN SUGAR BOWL COMES DOWN TO FLORIDA’S D – BCS on FOX analyst Charles Davis dissects this Friday’s Sugar Bowl between the Cincinnati Bearcats and Florida Gators: “Cincinnati is an offensive driven team that replaced 10 starters on defense when the season began and played pretty well early. But in the last month of the season, everything became a track meet with a mentality of ‘the offense better win it.’ They do such a great job maximizing matchups on offense and getting the ball in the hands of playmakers like Isaiah Pead, and wideouts Armon Binns and Mardy Gilyard. For Florida, their defense is outstanding and that’s where I see the difference in this game. Guys like Carlos Dunlap rushing the passer with Jermaine Cunningham off the edge; they’re going to be tough to stop.”
