Florida off to an early big lead

Looks like this one is not going to be a defensive struggle. Florida raced off to a 21-7 in the first half but Ohio State has countered closing the gap to 21-14. The underdog always need to spring out to have a chance in one of these contests, but Ohio State is hanging in there so far. Ted Ginn Jr. returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a TD. It's a prelude of things to come in the BCS title game, as Florida responds with TDs on its first three drives and Ohio State answers (again) to trail 21-14. This one is going to be a knockdown drag out fight. Nice to see another contest worthy of being fought for the national championship.

Florida just kicked a FG with 6:00 to go in the second half and has taken a 24-14 lead over Ohio State. Ohio State just gave up the ball on downs on their own 30 yard line after going for it on 4th down deep in their own territory with 3 minutes to go in the second half. Florida is rolling for another score before the half which will really put OSU behind the eight ball going into the second half. Ohio State is beginning to look like a beaten team. Kind of out of character for Tressel to do that, and he is going to criticized for it tomorrow. Florida kicks another FG and goes up 27-14 with 1:53 left in thr second half.

Florida picks up turnover on the first play of the next Ohio State possession inside the OSU twenty. Florida is in great shape to pick up another score before the half. This is self destruction at it's finest. Tebow throws a short pass for the TD and Florida goes up 34-14 going into the half.
Wow, what a complete collapse by Ohio State. It isn't like Florida is that good, Ohio State is handing them the game on a silver platter.

The third quarter has been boring in comparison to the rest of the game. Ohio State's offense can't get anything going and Florida is just trying to keep the clock moving.

41-14 Florida with around ten minutes left in the game. This was a real butt kicking for Ohio State and the Big Ten.
