Michigan-Florida preview: Unknowns offer intrigue for Saturday's showdown in ...

When Michigan released its roster earlier this week and Florida announced its starting quarterback hours later, two of the big mysteries heading into the teams' season opener were revealed.

The palatial, 100,000-seat home of the Dallas Cowboys will provide the stage for two programs with high expectations and plenty of unknowns.

Coach Jim Harbaugh's defense led the nation in yards in 2016, giving up 261.8 a game, and ranked second in points (14.1).

The Gators haven't opened a season away from Gainesville since 1987 — a 31-4 loss at Miami — and haven't played a non-conference, regular-season game outside the Sunshine State since losing 38-21 at Syracuse in 1991.

The Wolverines dominated both lines of scrimmage that New Year's Day, outgained the Gators 270-28 in the second half, and handed Florida its most lopsided loss in two decades and its second-worst defeat in bowl history.
