Lincoln Riley's bowl drought ended in blowout fashion.
The Oklahoma head coach finally got his first postseason victory on his fourth attempt as the No. 6 Sooners knocked off a shorthanded No. 7 Florida team, 55-20, at the Cotton Bowl Classic in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday.
OU (9-2) has now won at least nine games in each of Riley's first four seasons.
The Gators (8-4) played without their top four pass-catchers. Wideouts Trevon Grimes and Kadarius Toney opted out to prepare for the NFL draft. Tight end Kyle Pitts also declined to participate, while receiver Jacob Copeland was unable to play after testing positive for COVID-19.
