Panthers in attendance for Saturday’s Kentucky vs. Florida matchup

·1 min read

The Carolina Panthers have plenty to focus on this weekend. After all, they only begin their 2022 regular season in less than 24 hours.

That, however, doesn’t mean they don’t have an eye on the future.

According to ESPN NFL draft analyst Jordan Reid, the Panthers will have some have representation down at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla. tonight—the site of an SEC battle between the Kentucky Wildcats and Florida Gators. They’ll be joined, unsurprisingly, by 14 other teams.

And that number is unsurprising because of the two headliners of the matchup—starting quarterbacks and top 2023 NFL draft prospects Will Levis and Anthony Richardson.

Levis is currently in his senior year at the University of Kentucky. He began his final collegiate campaign on a good note last week, passing for 303 yards and three touchdowns in a 37-13 win over the Miami University Redhawks.

Not to be outdone, Richardson shined as well in Florida’s season-opening triumph. The dual-threat 6-foot-4, 232-pounder—who some would say resembles a young Cam Newton—completed 17 of his 24 throws for 168 yards while adding another 111 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

The Wildcats and Gators kick off at 7:00 p.m. ET.
