Florida’s Season Opener at ESPN’s Much-Awaited Games in 2022

Florida football is at the peak of its annual Orange and Blue Spring games – despite a two-year hiatus due to COVID – but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to look forward to next fall when the Gators officially return to the gridiron. Among many in the media the scope of the autumn schedule is ESPN, which recently published a roundtable discussion about the most anticipated matchups on the college football schedule in 2022.

ESPN’s Chris Low was most excited about the Florida-Utah game, as it represents a rare opportunity to see a game between the SEC and the Pac-12 on one of the school’s campuses. He also noted the many stories that came with the game, including the debut of the Gators’ new head coach.

He offered the following regarding the reasoning behind his selection.

Sign me up anytime the SEC and Pac-12 square off – on anyone’s premises. There is something about one school and its fans trekking across the country to play in another school with a different culture and different group of fans. There are plenty of storylines leading up to the Florida-Utah season opener in Gainesville on September 3. For one, it is Billy Napier’s debut as Florida head coach and Gator Nation is hungry to see him off to a great start. The schedule is a tough time for Napier in his first season. There are trips to Tennessee (September 24), Texas A&M (November 5) and the state of Florida (November 25), not to mention the annual conflict with Georgia in Jacksonville (October 29). So if the Gators are going to win 10 or more games in 2022, they need to focus on business in the opener. For a Utah team ranked in the top 10 of some early-season polls, it’s a chance to defeat an SEC foe on the road that will bolster Utah’s college football playoff résumé if they can repeat as Pac-12 champions. In addition, former Florida linebacker Mohamed Diabet, second on the team in tackles a year ago, moved to Utah and is going up against his old teammates.

It should be a fun one for Gator Nation when Napier’s squad kicks off the 2022 event early next September. In the meantime, there’s still a lot to be said for the outcome of the Spring game as well as the team’s efforts in the Transfer Portal.
