Florida Releases Rosters for Orange & Blue Game

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Florida Gators football team released its rosters for the 2024 Orange & Blue Game. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 PM on Saturday and streamed on SEC Network+, while a radio broadcast will be available on the Gators Sports Network from Learfield.


The team will split into two squads (Orange and Blue) and on game day, each team will run out of separate tunnels using both the home and visiting locker rooms.

The game will feature four quarters, a 15-minute halftime and a running clock with the exception of the last four minutes of each half. The clock will also stop for penalties, change of possession and scores.

Competition between the two teams will serve as a way for fans to experience a Gators game day at the Swamp.

Earlier this week, Florida head coach Billy Napier explained how the teams were constructed.

“What we do is we divide the players up to try to make the game as competitive as possible based off of who’s available and then we allow the veteran players on each team to draft all parts of the organization,” Napier explained. “So we divide the entire organization in half and we give them a little ownership in terms of, ‘Hey, I want this guy to be my OC, I want this guy to be my DC, he’s going to be the assistant head coach.’ They pick their strength staff. Every part of the building is broken in half just to make it competitive, you either win or you lose and I think it’s healthy and it certainly makes it fun. We’ll meet with the veteran players at some point Thursday before practice. Then we announce the teams post practice and then they have their own Friday prep independent of each other so we try to simulate a Friday and then get them ready for the game.”
