BCS Battle: Oklahoma vs Florida State

Seldom has there been a bigger cause for revenge and a bigger stage for achieving it than when Florida State hosts Oklahoma Saturday.

The top-ranked Sooners pulverized the Seminoles in Norman last year with QB Landy Jones completing 30 of 40 passes for 380 yards with four TDs in the 47-17 beatdown.

This year, with the Seminoles ranked No. 5, it's critical to play well for BCS bowl consideration - as well as exacting some revenge.

Oddsmakers still side with the top-ranked team, keeping them as 3-point road underdogs. [ You can even get them at +3.5 at Bovada as of late Friday ] This despite the fact Oklahoma is on a 2-5 ATS run in road games.
