Ohio State vs. Notre Dame, Utah vs. Florida and extra

The first marquee game of the day turned out to be a complete demonstration of the dominance of the #3 Georgia Bulldogs, who choked down #11 Oregon 49-3 in Atlanta.

In another rank-over-rank match, Arkansas beat Cincinnati 31-24, beginning a long winning streak for the Bearcats in the regular season.

There was plenty of drama elsewhere on the first full Saturday of the college football season, and we still have a few big games on the agenda.

Here’s what to watch for the rest of the day.

#7 Utah in Florida
Time: 7 p.m. | TV: ESPN | Line: Utah-3 | Total: 50.5
Utah finally broke through and won the Pac-12 title last year. A significant portion of that roster is back in 2022 and many are projecting the Utes as a team capable of racing to the CFP. This run starts with a big challenge in Gainesville against Florida. UF will play its first game under Billy Napier after things took a turn for the worse under Dan Mullen last fall. Having Anthony Richardson, one of the country’s most electrifying playmakers, as quarterback will certainly be a plus for Napier.

No. 5 Notre Dame in the State of Ohio No. 2
Time: 7:30 p.m. | TV: ABC | Line: OSU-17 | Total: 59.5
Marcus Freeman’s era at Notre Dame begins with a daunting challenge. The Irish have been represented in the national championship again and again in recent years, but have not been able to overcome the hump. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes won 11 games last year but lost to Michigan for the first time since 2011 and didn’t win the Big Ten for the first time since 2016. The OSU offense has been one of the best in the nation and QB CJ Stroud, WR Jaxon Smith -Njigba and RB TreVeyon Henderson are all back in 2022.
