The Billy Napier era is off to a roaring start. The Florida Gators won a thriller in their 2022 season opener, beating No. 8 Utah behind a stellar day from quarterback Anthony Richardson.
The 29-26 victory catapulted Florida into the Top 25. Now at No. 19, the Gators prepare to face their second consecutive ranked opponent to start the season: the No. 20 Kentucky Wildcats.
The Swamp was buzzing with a record crowd to open the season when the Gators stunned the Utes thanks to Amari Burney’s late interception in the end zone. Richardson had three rushing touchdowns and was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week.
The United Kingdom had it easier in their first game, beating Miami (Ohio) 37-13. The victory was the 60th in Lexington for trainer Mark Stoops, surpassing the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant for the most in program history. The Wildcats are led by quarterback Will Levis, who, like Richardson, was on the preseason Maxwell Award watch list.
