The best thing about the College Football Playoff format is that it encourages Power 5 schools to face each other early in the season. That is why the opening weekend in 2017 has a slew of interesting matchups. One of the best of those games will see Florida take on Michigan in Arlington, Texas.
This neutral site game will see one of the favorites to win the SEC East take on one of the favorites to win the Big Ten. An added layer of intrigue was added this past week when former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire announced his intention to transfer to Florida. The winner of the battle in the "Jerry Dome" will set themselves up for a big season.
