Get football picks for every game from a proven college football expert
Eric Cohen is a college football aficionado who gained more than 11 units with his SEC college football parlays last fall. He is a daily contributor to SportsLine’s YouTube show “Early Edge in 5” and will be a member of SportsLine’s weekly college football programming this fall. He’s giving away one team to consider backing during college football’s Week 1 schedule.
For Week 1, Cohen is picking Utah straight up in a high-profile Power Five matchup against Florida in which Utah is favored by eight points. Fans will remember last year’s Week 1 matchup between these teams, when the Gators pulled off a late score to defeat the Utes 29-26 at the Swamp. With this season’s opener taking place at Rice-Eccles Stadium, Utah has a chance at redemption.
Cohen sees experience playing a role in this Week 1 matchup, with the back-to-back Pac-12 champions also having 16 players returning from last year’s team. Meanwhile, Florida only has 11 players returning and will break in a new starting quarterback after Anthony Richardson was selected No. 4 by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2023 NFL Draft.
