While I hate to say it (especially since my other system is Nikon) the Canon system AF for tracking is probably better (assuming the Canon is not really old).
It's just phase versus contrast.

FWIW, when I shot college football games at night from the field, I had my 70-200 at f/2.8, my shutter at 1/500th if I could, and my ISO on my D300 was around 800. For close plays, the 70-200 was fine, but I would have killed for a stop or two more so I could keep the shutter speed at 1/500th, and stopped the lens down a bit if at all possible. In short, it seemed like I was always fighting for light, especially when they wore all black uniforms.

Good luck,

--Ken
