On behalf of the Gator Nation, I’d like to thank you, SEC Network, for the early football scheduling gift. On Thursday the new network, which launches on Aug. 14, released its first four week schedule for the 2014 season. Included were what seems like a rarity for the Gators: two early season late-afternoon/night home games.
The Gators’ Sept. 6 game against Eastern Michigan is set for 4:00 p.m. ET, and the Sept. 13 game against Kentucky will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Following is the SEC Network’s football schedule for the first four weeks of the season. All times are subject to change, so here’s to hoping Florida’s don’t.
