The Noles and Sooners might be the biggest game in the country that day, but it's not the only big game in Florida. Tennessee plays in Gainesville at 3:30. FAMU travels to Tampa, as will many of its fans, to meet USF (no kickoff time announced yet). Add to that UCF heading to Miami to play FIU (6pm kickoff).
Imagine 200,000 or more football fans traveling to all those games, and you get the picture -- a not very pretty one. It even makes a two-day minimum motel stay begin to sound pretty good.
