GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's season opener against Western Kentucky has been moved from 6 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. to accommodate one of the Southeastern Conference's television partners.
The defending national champions prefer to play early season home games at night, hoping to reduce the number of heat-related problems.
But Lincoln Financial Sports needed a game to televise September 1st, and asked the Gators to make the switch.
