The Michigan Wolverines and Florida Gators will square off Saturday Afternoon from Dallas, Texas as the first full weekend of the 2017 NCAA football schedule is finally here!

What better way is there to get the 2017 NCAA football season started than two of the biggest names in the game today clashing right off the bat? While both teams come into Saturday's game with many question marks, there is no doubt that the winner of this game could jump right into the top ten.

Florida looks for third straight SEC title

When you play in the same conference as Alabama, getting noticed can be tough.

Nevertheless, the Florida Gators will be looking to three-peat as SEC East champions. That may be a bit tougher than it sounds with all of the off field distractions the Gators are facing heading into Saturday's game against the Wolverines.

The suspensions to running back Jordan Scarlett and wide receiver Antonio Callaway are definitely going to be a major issue - not to mention that Florida will be starting redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks. Suspensions aside, don't look for that to be an excuse for the Gators not putting up a strong effort against Michigan. Backups like Tyrie Cleveland, Freddie Swain, Josh Hammond and Brandon Powell are more than capable of holding their own on the gridiron.

New Wolverines look to start strong

After a bit of a quarterback controversy, Wilton Speight will once again lead the Wolverines into action in 2017. Speight, along with tailback Chris Evans will return on offense this season for Michigan, however, the question is who will catch Speight's passes in 2017?

Michigan lost a ton of talent last season, including Amara Darboh, Jake Butt and Jehu Chesson.

Those are some big weapons that are now playing on Sundays in the NFL. Add to that list the likes of defensive end Taco Charlton and safety/punt returner Jabrill Peppers and the Wolverines will look much different this fall than they did in 2016.
