Football is Back! | WKU Connection

Tonight starts the college football season with 2 games, Florida vs Miami at Camping World Stadium in Orlando Fl. And Arizona at Hawaii.

Both games will kick off the 150th season of college football.

A quick breakdown of each game starting with Florida and Miami.

This is a rivalry game between 2 Sunshine State teams looking for bragging rights. Florida comes into the game after having a good season last year in Dan Mullen’s first year at Florida going 10-3 and a Peach Bowl victory. Expectations are high for the Gators as they come into this game ranked preseason number #8.

Miami on the other hand went 7-6 a season ago. Mark Richt decided to step down as head coach for the Hurricanes and his defensive coordinator took over as head coach Manny Diaz. The betting line is -7.5 Florida with an over/under of 47.

The other game tonight is Arizona vs Hawaii, this game is expected to have lots of points. Hawaii is coming off an 8-6 season with high expectations this season and wants to start it off right with a win.

Arizona is in a different setting right now after a 5-7 season a year ago in Kevin Sumlin’s 1st season as head coach. Khalil Tate is hopefully going to put up video game like numbers as he did in 2018 season this year. The betting line for this game is Arizona -11.5 and the over/under is 73.5.
