In the modern era of the game (since 1950), the highest-ranked season openers are a pair of 1-versus-4 matchups - No. 1 Oklahoma vs. Florida 18. Miami 19. It will be Florida's first non-conference regular-season game played outside of the state since 1991.

If the Cats can win one of those two games, they'll be in good shape for the Big 12 Championship Game.
