Florida and MI tangle in Arlington

Perhaps the most overlooked part, though, is that MI has a much better group of skill position players. The Wolverines only let O'Korn throw one pass (a 37-yard completion) before they turned back to Speight. The Gators lost two fumbles in their territory in the third, each leading to MI scores.

Florida managed just 192 yards total offense, its lowest output since the 2015 SEC championship game against Alabama.

Florida has been hit by a series of suspension as of starting running back Jordan Scarlett, wide receiver Rick Wells, star wide receiver Antonio Callaway and Freshman wide receiver James Robinson all due to different in-disciplinary actions. Franks finished 5-for-9 for 75 yards. The junior was in a battle this offseason with John O'Korn, and ultimately won out.

Speight threw another interception on Michigan's next drive as Gators freshman cornerback C.J. Henderson capitalized on an overthrown pass and returned it for a touchdown.

Coming out of the gate on Saturday at Jerry World, it appeared that the short-handed Florida Gators (10 players suspended for this game) were just outclassed by the Michigan Wolverines.

The Gators did find some scoring punch on defense, with the Gators returning two interceptions for scores in the first half. Linebackers blitzed frequently to disrupt Florida's offense, with Devin Bush having a field day, making Feleipe Franks' and Malik Zaire's days miserable. Those defensive touchdowns helped the Gators stake a 17-13 halftime lead. The 'Noles fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Harris again capitalized by racing in for an 11-yard touchdown dash.

Nordin made four field goals, including a 55-yarder in the first half.

State Department persisted with that line, arguing that it matched the number of consulates the two countries hold. Putin ordered 755 American diplomatic personnel be cut and two diplomatic facilities in Moscow be shut down.

The lack of playmakers showed on offense for the Gators, as their quarterbacks were unable to sustain drives throughout the game.

The Michigan Wolverines were looking to start off the season on a good note.

Some football pundits point to 2018 as the year when Michigan's roster will see a convergence of both talent and experience, but the season in front of us can't simply be overlooked.

We rank all 14 teams of the Big Ten Conference, including Michigan and Michigan State, entering the 2017 college football season. The Wolverines had only worn maize jerseys once previously, against Navy in 1928.

17 Florida at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas is one of the marquee matchups of the first full weekend of the 2017 college football season. It was the longest active streak in the country.

When all is said and done, will No. 11 MI be able to do enough to beat and cover against No. 17 Florida when the two collide today at 3:30PM ET?
