No. 12 Florida (1-0) at Miami (1-0), Noon (ESPN)
Line: Florida by 3
Series record: Miami leads 28-26
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Plenty, even though it's just a nonconference game in Week 2. For Miami, a win means an almost-certain return to the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2010, bragging rights over a rival and being able to say the rebuilding phase might really be over. For Florida, it's a chance to leave a big exclamation mark on the series, since these teams are not expected to play again for a long, long time.
Miami's wide receivers vs. Florida's cornerbacks. With players like Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins at the corners, the Gators might have the deepest secondary in the nation, and having playmakers back there is a Florida tradition of sorts. Look for plenty of 1-on-1 matchups that Miami wideouts Phillip Dorsett, Allen Hurns and Stacy Coley will have to win for the Hurricanes to be successful.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Florida: Flanker Trey Burton is a threat in many ways, including when the Gators use him lining up in the Wildcat formation. Florida is 9-1 when he runs for a touchdown, and while he might not put up monster numbers, his versatility alone could keep Miami's defensive line guessing.
Miami: All eyes will be on RB Duke Johnson, whose 186 rushing yards led the nation in Week 1. If Florida keeps him bottled up, the Hurricanes could be in trouble. Johnson didn't have big stats in games against top-notch opponents last season, though a toe injury had him hampered at times. This season, he's bigger and stronger.
FACTS & FIGURES
The teams have no future meetings scheduled, though Miami would like to see the series continued. ... The last meeting was in 2008, a 26-3 Florida win. ... Miami has added more than 1,300 seats to Sun Life Stadium for this game, bringing the capacity to just under 77,000, which would be a Hurricane record for that facility.
