Fiesta Bowl might trade Big 12 champion Oklahoma to Sugar: In my rundown of Florida's possible Sugar Bowl opponents yesterday, I neglected to note that Oklahoma's been in Arizona in four of the last six years, making something like the trade that is reportedly likely in this article possible. I don't think the swap mentioned here is of potential Big 12 champion Oklahoma for Florida; I think it's about getting OU out of the desert. And Kansas State can make it moot by just beating Texas, so feel free to root for that. (Berry Tramel, The Oklahoman)

Gators back among elite: And back to being hungry. (Andy Staples,

Florida "on path" to being fixed: Yeah, I dunno if believing Muschamp when he says Florida not playing for a title doesn't make it fixed. (Matt Watts, The Miami Herald)

The arguments for keeping and replacing Mack Brown: Texas is the funhouse mirror version of Florida. (Good.Shepherd, Barking Carnival)

Did Urban Meyer do his best coaching job this year? No. But it's an interesting argument. (Joe Posnanski)

The Alligator will keep some of its orange racks: Compromises are cool. (Nathan Crabbe, The Gainesville Sun)

Will Muschamp's Monday media availability: This is where he lowers the boom on Nick Saban, but, more importantly, Muschamp smiles! (GatorZone)
