Florida vs. Michigan game information: The Gators open their season away from the state of Florida for the first time since 1979. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)

UF is also doing this #Chompville thing:

Josh Hammond following in brother’s footsteps: The younger brother of former Gator Frankie Hammond has emerged as one of Florida’s most consistent receivers during fall camp. (Kevin Brockway, Gainesville Sun)

McElwain says there is “no doubt” that Malik Zaire will play: He wouldn’t go into specifics about his Michigan game plan, but noted that Zaire had a good camp and would see playing time this season. (Jordan McPherson, SEC Country)

Gators to host Facebook Live pregame show: One hour prior to kickoff, UF will stream their own pregame show - an option for you if you don’t want to watch traditional ones repeatedly refer to Florida’s suspensions. (Dustin Ciraco, Florida Gators)

Is better offensive line play on the horizon?: We’ve been hearing all offseason that the unit could be a strength of the team. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)

On Michigan’s youth: The Wolverines return less of their lineup than any other team in the country. How might that affect them? (Neil Paine, FiveThirtyEight)
