ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Spencer Rattler accounted for four touchdowns and No. 8 Oklahoma beat 10th-ranked SEC runner-up Florida 55-20 in the Cotton Bowl. The Sooners finished 9-2, winning their last eight. The last two were at the home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, where 11 days earlier they won their sixth consecutive Big 12 title. Rattler threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score. Rhamondre Stevenson rushed for 186 yards and a touchdown. Florida’s Kyle Trask threw three interceptions in the first quarter, after the Heisman Trophy finalists had only five all season. Florida finished 8-4.
