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 by quarterback Anthony Richardson.

The 29-26 win catapulted Florida into the Top 25. Now at No. 19, the Gators get set to face their second straight ranked opponent to start the season: the No. 20 Kentucky Wildcats.

The Swamp was rocking 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 scored three rushing touchdowns and was named the SEC offensive player of the week.

UK had an easier time in their opener, beating Miami (Ohio) 37-13. The win was No. 60 in Lexington for coach Mark Stoops, pushing him past 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.
