The first game of the 2019 college football season is almost here. It'll be a rivalry game between Florida and Miami, as both programs are competing for bragging rights.

In preparation for this matchup, ESPN's College GameDay was live at Disney's Magic Kingdom. They also had a star-studded cast of guests, such as Tim Tebow and Steve Spurrier.

Miami and Florida most likely won't put up a bunch of points on the scoreboard. Quarterbacks Feleipe Franks and Jarren Williams are quite talented, but they'll have to face strong defenses.

While this game could come down to the wire, the Gators are the odds-on favorites to start the season with a victory.

Although Florida is projected to beat Miami, not every member of the College GameDay crew picked the team from Gainesville.

It's not surprising when you consider where he played college football, but guest picker Michael Irvin is going with his Hurricanes.

Desmond Howard is confident in Manny Diaz's squad as he's picking Miami as well. On the flip side, Lee Corso is taking Florida.

Kirk Herbstreit didn't make a selection because he'll be in the broadcast booth for this showdown.

Kickoff for this showdown will be at 7 p.m. ET from Camping World Stadium.

ESPN will broadcast the Florida-Miami game.
