At long last, college football is nearly back. Here’s how to watch Florida Gators football throughout the 2022 season.
This is… The Swamp! Football is almost back – which means we finally have our Saturday rituals back. Here’s how to watch Florida Gators football in 2022.
Florida Gators 2022 Outlook
The Gators have one of the most explosive players in the nation in Anthony Richardson. However, while the odds are definitely in his favor, it isn’t a certainty that he’ll be the starter in 2022. Richardson’s game-breaking abilities might be better suited for specific packages and Jack Miller III – who transferred from Ohio State – could beat him out for the starting nod.
But the bigger questions for Florida come down to the supporting cast. Just 13 of 53 touchdowns from 2021 return to Gainesville, but there’s plenty of options for head coach Billy Napier.
Montrell Johnson – a hard-running transfer from Louisiana – has impressed during the spring. Johnson ran for 838 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2021, but he’ll likely be the primary backup to Nay’Quan Wright. Wright has had his fair share of injuries, but has averaged more than four yards per carry over the last two seasons.
On the wide receiver front, the pack will likely be led by Justin Shorter. The junior is coming off a 41-catch, 550-yard season a year ago. And when it comes to tight ends, the list is pretty short. Keon Zipperer has 25 receptions in his collegiate career – and no other Florida tight end has caught a pass at the NCAA level.
Florida Football Schedule 2022
Six of Florida’s games are currently locked into a time slot and network. They are:
Saturday, September 3: vs Utah (7PM ET, ESPN)
Saturday, September 10: vs Kentucky (7PM ET, ESPN)
Saturday, September 17: vs USF (7:30PM ET, SEC Network)
Saturday, October 1: vs Eastern Washington (12PM ET, SEC Network+)
Saturday, October 29: vs Georgia (3:30PM ET, CBS)
Friday, November 25: at Florida State (7:30PM ET, ABC)
Overall, the Gators will stay at home for seven of the first eight weeks of the year, with the lone away game coming against Tennessee. However, Florida doesn’t get any warm-ups to start the year, hosting Utah and Kentucky in back-to-back weeks.
The second half of the season is punctuated with The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party and two away games – Texas A&M and FSU.
