Florida Gators vs. Utah Utes live stream: Watch college football for free

The college football season is underway, and Week 1 features an intriguing Thursday night showdown between teams from the SEC and the Pac-12. The unranked Florida Gators travel to Salt Lake City to take on No. 14 Utah Utes. The Utes are a 4.5-point favorite on FanDuel. Last year, these two met in Gainesville, with Florida edging out a 29-26 win.

The Gators enter year two under head coach Billy Napier, who won six games in his debut season. With quarterback Anthony Richardson in the NFL, the Gators will turn to Wisconsin transfer Graham Mertz to line up under center. For Utah, the 2022 Pac-12 champions open the season ranked in the Top 25 and should be in contention for another conference championship. The health of Utes quarterback Cam Rising will play a factor in determining Utah’s success.

Aerial shot of Florida Football's stadium with fans in the stands.

It's an SEC showdown on Saturday night as the No. 11 Tennessee Volunteers (2-0) travel to Gainesville to play their rivals, the Florida Gators (1-1). The game will take place inside the raucous atmosphere of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, better known as "The Swamp." On FanDuel, Tennessee are 6.5-point favorites.

It's been smooth sailing for the Vols to start the 2023 season. In two games, Tennessee has combined to outscore their opponents 79-26 in two blowout victories. However, Florida will be their toughest test of the season as it will be the team's first road game of the season. After stumbling in the season opener against No. 12 Utah, Florida got back on track last week with a 49-7 victory over McNeese St.

The SEC takes center stage on Saturday afternoon as the South Carolina Gamecocks travel to Athens, Georgia, to take on the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs. The game will be played at Sanford Stadium on the campus of the University of Georgia. On FanDuel, the Bulldogs are a huge 27.5-point favorite.

After losing to North Carolina in the opening game, South Carolina bounced back last week with a 47-21 win over Furman. However, beating Georgia is nearly an impossible task. The Bulldogs have not lost a game since December 4, 2021. To make matters worse, South Carolina has lost seven of the last eight matchups against Georgia, with their lone win coming in 2019.

The Vikings' offense failed to get a first down for the rest of the game as Tampa held on for the victory. In Foxboro, Massachusetts, the Eagles' offensive exploded for 16 unanswered points in the first quarter before going ice cold the rest of the half.
