There is le s than two weeks before each of the four primary Florida college football programs from taking to the gridiron to play their first college football games of 2022. Time to discu s which teams have succe s and why.UCF KnightsHead Coach Gus Malzahn named on Sunday. He will be a dynamic playmaker that will actually challenge for the team lead in rushing, to go along with over 2,000 yards pa sing.A balanced group of skill players will keep defenses honest, and keep the chains moving. Of note, running back Isaiah Bowser will be starting running back that powers the football between the tackles, while a Josh Shaw Jersey bevy of receivers led by Ryan O'Keefe provide explosive plays.The veteran offensive line will also be important to help Bowswer and a deep stable of running backs. They will also prove to be valuable during critical moments on the road when crowd noise will become a factor.The defense has several key players returning along the defensive line, plus the addition of 320-pound nose guard Lee Hunter after his transfer from Auburn. Look for defensive tackle Ricky Barber and defensive ends Josh Celiscar and Tremon Morris-Brash to lead the way.At linebacker, Jeremiah Jean-Baptiste is back to lead the unit thats going to see several new faces like Jason Johnson that transferred from Eastern Illinois.In the secondary, thats the strength of the UCF defense. Theres speed, size, and experience along the two-deep depth chart. Look for cornerback Davonte Brown to challenge for conference Defensive Player of the Year.Finally, a schedule that sees most of the talented teams come to the Bounce House will help produce an opportunity for UCF to reach the American Athletic Conference Championship Game and play Houston. A critical second game of the season against Louisville (Sep. 9) will be pivotal in determining just how good UCF has become this season. After that, two more home games in American Athletic Conference play will determine whether UCF heads to the Conference Championship Game and likely play Houston.Those games come against SMU (Oct. 1) and Cincinnati (Oct. 29). Other games of note have UCF on the road at East Carolina (Oct. 22) and Memphis (Nov. 5). Projected regular season record: 10-2.Florida GatorsIts Year 1 for Head CoachBilly Napier and his coaching staff, and its a rebuild in terms of culture as well with the roster having turnover after the last staff simply failed to keep the players interested all the way through the 2021 season.How quickly can Carlos Dunlap Jersey the Gators rebuild? Much of that answer depends on recruiting, but for the 2022 season there needs to be players who step up on both sides of the football and become leaders; players that hold their peers accountable unlike the end of last season.Wide receiver Justin Shorter should be the go-to playmaker on offense when quarterback Anthony Richardson throws the football. Those two will need to connect consistently to allow the Florida offense to move the football. The offensive two-deep is full of sophomores and juniors. The inexperience could show itself at times this fall, but these are still players recruited to play in the SEC East. Look for many highs and lows, and overall inconsistency. Thats the nature of a culture change with young players.On defense, the Gators gave up 26.8 points per game last season. Mental errors more than a talent deficiency caused the i sues. Sure, more talent is needed for the Gator faithful to be truly happy with their squad once again, but the 2022 defensive unit has edge defender Brenton Cox, Jr. and safety William Jackson Jersey Rashad Torrence II, among others, that are available.This Florida defense will show consistency before the end of the season, and it will help the Gators move into a new era with some pride.The schedule is tough as usual, with Utah (Sep. 3) and Kentucky (Sep. 10) coming to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to begin the season. The usual SEC slate is not friendly, with Tenne see (Sep. 24) on the road, LSU (Oct. 15) at home and Georgia (Oct. 29) in Jacksonville, plus a road trip to Texas A&M (Nov. 5).The season ends in Tallaha see against Florida State (Nov. 25), an important rivalry game and one that could shift momentum for one of the two programs.Projected regular season record: 7-5.Florida State SeminolesThe roller coaster that is Florida State Football has continued since right before Jimbo Fisher took off for College Station. Now, its the critical third season for Head Coach Mike Norvell and his Seminoles. Will they get over the hump and start making serious headway?Scroll to ContinueQuarterback Jordan Travis leads an offense that will have eight starters returning plus C.J. Uzomah Jersey a talented transfer in Ble s Harris at offensive tackle. If this is not the year for high-level production, its hard to imagine when it would be.Receiver Ontaria Wilson needs to take his game to another level after leading the Noles with five touchdown catches last season. There are several running backs that could make an impact, and tight end Camrem McDonald is another veteran that could be a safety valve for Travis.Defensively, the Seminoles need to be more sound. Too many big plays were given up last season, especially during critical moments. Starting defensive tackles Robert Cooper and Fabien Lovett are back, but the Seminoles are hoping for FCS transfer Jared Verse to help a pa s rush that lost 18.5 of their sacks from last season from Jessie Bates III Jersey just two players.UCF transfer Tatum Bethune will help to shore up the linebacker corps, while the secondary is experienced and talented. Look for safety Jammie Robinson to have a big year. The schedule has potential pitfalls with LSU in New Orleans (Sep. 4) being one of the first intriguing games of the 2022 college football season. At Louisville 12 days later, plus three games of note including Wake Forest (Oct. 1), at North Carolina State (Oct. 8) and Clemson (Oct. 15) will probably say a lot about how much FSU improved since last season.The annual rivalry game with Miami (Nov. 5) is on the road, and then the showdown with Florida is at home.Projected regular season record: 7-5.Miami HurricanesAnother fresh start, as Miami turns to one of its own with former offensive lineman Mario Cristobal to turn the program around as its new leader. He does have some key pieces coming back, and that includes one of the nations best overall players with quarterback Tyler Van Dyke.The talented signal caller needs his receivers to step up, as last season saw far too many mi sed opportunities with dropped pa ses. At least there
