Utah 24 Florida 11

Utah 24 Florida 11

In the season opener for both teams, the #14 ranked Utah Utes ... missing 8 starters ... beat the mighty Florida Gators from the SEC.

With starting QB Cam Rising out along with multiple other starters, the two back-ups ... Bryson Barnes & Nate Johnson ... guided the Utes to a comfortable 24-11 win over the proud and once-mighty Gators.

A record crowd of 53,644 attended the game. It was a hot, breezy day with game-time temperatures ... according to my car thermometer ... at 96 degrees.

The 3,000+ Florida fans had little to cheer about. Hope they enjoyed the rest of their visit.

See the photos above to see a little bit of what happened.
