There are probably not two teams in the country who feel like they have more to prove than the two teams that are squaring off in the AT&T Cotton Bowl on Friday.
Although the Cotton Bowl is a highly respected and highly desirable bowl game to play in, the fact remains it is not one of the coveted BCS bowls. So on Friday night when the Texas A&M Aggies and Oklahoma Sooners meet, they will each look to prove that they should have been one of the teams invited to a BCS bowl game.
They better be careful. If they are going to say it, they better back it up. Will Muschamp spent all month leading up to the Sugar Bowl saying that his Florida team should have been playing for the National Championship. They had an opportunity to prove it to the college football world against Louisville in the Sugar Bowl, and they failed. Miserably.
Note to Aggies and Sooners: If you feel like you have something to prove to the naysayers, you better back it up and make a case for your argument.
