What a win for Florida in Billy Napier's first game at the helm for the Gators. UF was in a dogfight with No. 7 Utah all night and it looked like the Utes might score at the buzzer to escape Gainesville with the win, but Cam Rising's pass on 2nd and goal ended up in the hands of Florida's Amari Burney to seal the upset.
Utah just needed a chip shot field goal to send the game to overtime, too. Pain.
Anthony Richardson looked like he could carry the Gators pretty far this season, completing 17 of 24 passes for 168 yards and rushing for 104 yards and three touchdowns on 11 carries. And as a team, UF looked capable of competing with any team in the country this season on a night it gets Richardson's A-game.
Utah was a pretty trendy College Football Playoff pick coming into the season and while those hopes certainly aren't dashed, the Utes definitely dug themselves a hole in their season opener.
