For the Gators, Feleipe Franks took a big step forward in his first year with head coach Dan Mullen. The Gators went from a 4-7 team in 2017 under Jim McElwain and Randy Shannon (after McElwain as fired seven games into the season) to a 10 win team that beat Michigan in the Peach Bowl. Can Franks elevate his game further and help the Gators become national title contenders?
It's now been two years in a row that the Knights have gone undefeated in the regular season. However, last year's run came at a price. UCF lost starting QB McKenzie Milton in their game against USF and he will miss the entire season this year. Then this year, the Knights also lost the QB who replaced Milton in the final few games of last year's season, Darriel Mack Jr., to a broken ankle. Who will step up? Will it be Brandon Wimbush, the transfer from Notre Dame? Maybe true freshman Dillon Gabriel? Or will redshirt freshman Quadry Jones?
Last year was one to forget for FSU. The team went 5-7 under first year head coach Willie Taggart and missed a bowl game for the first time in 36 years. The team dismissed QB Deondre Francois after domestic abuse allegations and brought in new offensive coordinator, Kendal Briles. So which of the FSU QBs is best-suited for Briles' offense? Will it be redshirt sophomore James Blackman or Wisconsin transfer Alex Hornibrook?
The Canes also have a couple new quarterbacks as well as a new head coach. Manny Diaz will look to bring back swagger to 'The U' and will have redshirt freshman Jarren Williams as his starting QB. It's a bit of a surprise that Williams won the job over the guy that everyone expected to win the starting QB job, Ohio State transfer Tate Martell. How did Williams win the job over Martell?
