Both fan bases have reasons to be optimistic this year. Florida is coming off an impressive ten win season and they capped it off by curb stomping the Michigan Wolverines.
For Miami, it was just two years ago where they finally won ten games for the first time since 2003, but after last year’s disappointing 7-6 record Mark Richt decided he was done and Manny Diaz went ahead and got the job in a roundabout way.
Dan Mullen didn’t waste any time in turning around the Gators last year notching ten wins and finally beating the Michigan Wolverines.
Feleipe Franks had a breakout season throwing for 24 touchdowns. He’ll look to continue that trend this year and benefit from having Mullen’s offensive game planning.
This first match up won’t be easy against the Hurricanes, though. Miami has leaned heavily on their defense throughout the last few years and the Gators will have to replace basically their entire offensive line from last year. Offense won’t be easy to come by in this game.
Miami’s main problem last year was quarterback play. It’s a huge problem, obviously, but this is a team that is right on the cusp. Just average quarterback play could push them close to ten wins given their talent and the lack of good teams they actually have to face this year.
Jarren Williams will take the reins against the Gators and he’ll be thrown into the fire. The Gators have plenty of talent and their defense really started clicking late last year. There’s no doubt that the Gators will build off that success.
This game against Florida will be a nice test just to see where Miami stacks up nationally.

It’s good to have football back and this is a good matchup right from the start to kick things off. And it should be a competitive game.

I’ve got the Florida Gators winning and maybe backdoor covering. I’d even consider the under in this one as offense should be hard to come by.
It might not be the most entertaining game as far as offense is concerned, but it should be a really good high level game between two quality programs.
