A sneak peek at the Derby winner here ... Justify awaits the "middle jewel" of the Triple Crown. He should be making the walk to the track around 6:18 p.m. ET. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has brought a Derby winner here four times and has left four times with a chance at the Triple Crown.

The Preakness has been held here at Pimlico every year since 1909. It's a dilapidated venue but overflowing with history. I'm told there are no scratches or jockey changes today. Eight horses, including Derby winner Justify, who is undefeated and today's favorite. Place your bets ...

There are tractors driving on the other side of the track but it's so foggy here they are hard to see. This is the view from the press box balcony.

I stole my son's ruler to give you an idea of the mud on the track here at Pimlico. No matter which way you measure it, it's a mess, but it's only a slight drizzle here right now. Don't need an umbrella — yet.

Despite the Big 12's reputation, Baker Mayfield faced stiffer competition than either Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen last year. The adjusted defensive QBR of Mayfield's opponents, weighted by his number of action plays against them, was 44.8 last season. By the same method, Darnold's and Rosen's opponents' defensive QBR were 47.4 and 50.9, respectively. The lower the defensive QBR, the better the defense is at stopping opposing quarterbacks.

UCF declared itself national champs after finishing undefeated last season. So naturally there's now a sign inside the stadium.

UCF unveiled a 2017 national champions sign just before the start of its spring game Saturday.

It's hard to take away much of anything from a spring game, but Georgia QB Jake Fromm hasn't been sharp. He threw his second interception to William Poole on a poor pass into double coverage late in the third quarter, and he might have had three picks if Richard LeCounte hadn't dropped the ball in the first half.

Georgia's attendance for Saturday's G-Day game was 82,148, the second biggest crowd to watch a spring game in school history. A record 93,000 watched Kirby Smart's first spring game in 2016.

Georgia freshman Justin Fields' first unofficial college TD pass comes on a nice 13-yard throw to Matt Landers in the back of the end zone midway through the 3rd quarter.

Georgia kicker Rodrigo Blankenship, who dropped a rap song entitled "ATD" on SoundCloud earlier this week, scored the first offensive points of the spring game with a 41-yard field goal.

With Tua Tagovailoa sidelined, Jalen Hurts didn't do himself any favors in the quarterback competition, completing 19-37 passes for 195 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. Said Nick Saban: "I was not disappointed in the way Jalen played. I think we have some guys that can rush a little bit ... there was way too much pressure on the pocket for the quarterback to operate like we like."

Georgia probably won't match the 93,000 fans who watched Kirby Smart's first spring game in 2016. But there's probably more than 85,000 on hand on Saturday
