Youmans: Four Week 1 CFB bets I like

USATSI_15878041

LAS VEGAS -- It has been nearly three years since McKenzie Milton played in a football game, so the 23-year-old quarterback’s comeback from a career-threatening knee injury will be a big story when he takes the field Sunday night for Florida State.

Milton, a graduate transfer from UCF, has won his last 23 games as a starter. Those wins came a long time ago, before multiple surgeries were needed to save his right leg.

Will Milton be the same player? How quickly can Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly reload? A couple of fascinating questions will be answered when the Fighting Irish face the Seminoles in Tallahassee.

The Irish lost nine players to the NFL draft and must replace quarterback Ian Book, who had 30 wins as a starter. This is a weaker Notre Dame team than the one that finished 10-2 last season with losses to Alabama and Clemson. Kelly still has plenty of talent to work with, although the quarterback position is a concern. Jack Coan, a Wisconsin transfer, will operate Kelly’s offense and hand the ball often to running back Kyren Williams, who rushed for 185 yards in a 42-26 victory over Florida State last year.
