The Florida Gators will have three nationally televised games to start the college football season.
The SEC released its early season television broadcast schedule on Monday morning, just ahead of the conference media days this week. The Florida Gators start their season with three games on national television, including one in prime time.
Florida opens their season at home against Bowling Green. They get a prime time bid in the season's third week against Tennessee. The week before that, they open conference play against SEC newcomer Texas A&M. All three of those games will be broadcast on ESPN.
Dates, times and opponents are as follows (all times Eastern):
Sep. 1 - Bowling Green, 3:30 p.m.
Sep. 8 - at Texas A&M, 3:30 p.m.
Sep. 15 - at Tennessee, 6:00 p.m.
Florida's game in Jacksonville against Georgia on Oct. 27 will be seen on CBS, news which was announced earlier in the year.
