Utes vs Gators
Utah to WIN

The Utah Utes will visit Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to face the Florida Gators this weekend.

After a disappointing and confusing season in 2021, the Florida Gators will rely on Anthony Richardson to lead them in 2022. The former high school quarterback is a potential top-10 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The goal of the Florida football team is to improve on its 6-7 record from last season, which ended with a loss to UCF in the Gasparilla Bowl.

On the other side of the field, the Utah football team aims to prove to the committee that it's still a legitimate national title contender as it starts the season in seventh in the rankings. Kyle Whittingham's team comes into this season with high expectations, thanks in large part to quarterback Cameron Rising. Aside from their quarterback, the team also has a star player in running back Tavi Thomas. Last season, Thomas ran for over 1,100 yards and scored 21 touchdowns.

In this game, Utah is the moneyline favorite at -145.  BetMGM has an active offer for NCAA Football fans to bet on the Utah vs Florida game. New users can get a $1,000 risk-free bet by signing up using our exclusive link.

Utah vs Florida

Utah Utes

The Utah football team finished the season with a 10-4 record. They faced off against Ohio State University in their last game and lost by a score of 48-45. Cameron Rising connected on 17/22 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns. He also walked away without throwing an interception.

Rising was the best rusher in that game for the Utah football team, as he carried the ball 11 times for 92 yards. The team ran the ball 44 times, and they were able to gain 226 yards. After the game, they had 68 plays, and they were able to finish with 463 yards. The Utah defense also limited the passing game by allowing 37 pass completions on 47 attempts.

The Utes were ranked 22nd in the country regarding the team's defense, allowing 20.6 points per game. During the 2021 season, they allowed teams to run the ball for an average of 3.6 yards per carry and 122.0 running yards per game. Through 13 games, the Utah football team allowed 195.3 passing yards per game. They also gave up 317.3 yards per contest, which was 10th in the D-1 division.

Florida Gators

Last year, the Gators' season ended with a 29-17 loss to the UFC Knights. Despite a disappointing 6-7 record, the Gators still held the 15th spot in college football in yards per game with 464.1.

However, there are some injury reports from the Gators going into this season. Jack Miller III is out of the lineup as he is undergoing thumb surgery. It remains unclear whether Ethan White will play Saturday versus Utah since he is recuperating from a minor procedure. Ricky Pearsall is recovering from bone bruises but will likely face Utah this season opener.
