A look at the oil pattern for the national championship

Eight teams are fighting for the national championship this weekend in Wickliffe, Ohio. In order to be successful, they'll have to master a special oil pattern designed for the championship.

The pattern was designed in conjunction with the Kegel Training Center in Sebring, Fla, The pattern is 40 feet in length, with a higher concentration of oil in the middle of the lane, between the second arrows on each side. However, the ratio of light concentration to heavy is not nearly what you'd see in a typical league or "house" shot. This creates a challenging, but scorable condition. Players will have to execute, but if they do, they'll be rewarded.
