by | Jun 11, 2024 | 0 comments

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The television time windows for all SEC-controlled football matchups for the upcoming 2024 season were announced by the conference office and ESPN on Tuesday in conjunction with SEC Network. Exact start times and network designations will be announced as the games approach.

Previously, Florida’s first three kickoff times and network selections were announced that featured the season-opener vs. Miami (Aug. 31) at 3:30 p.m. on ABC, Samford (Sept. 7) at 7 p.m. on SECN+/ESPN+ and conference-opener against Texas A&M (Sept. 14) at 3:30 p.m. on ABC. Also the Florida-Georgia (Nov. 2) rivalry is set for 3:30 p.m. on ABC in Jacksonville at EverBank Stadium.

The Gators game at FSU is a non-controlled SEC game, therefore the ACC owns the rights and will announce the game time and television designation at a later date.

The four possible windows are early (Noon-1 p.m.), afternoon (3:30-4:30 p.m.), night (6-8 p.m.) and flex (3:30-8 p.m.). Each school can be assigned up to five total flex games and a max of three at home.

Recently, the upcoming themes and designations for all seven home games were announced.

Oct. 19 | Kentucky | Homecoming, UF Athletic Hall of Fame & GatorMade Week
As previously announced, the Gators will host the Wildcats for its annual Homecoming game on Saturday Oct. 19. The UF tradition was first celebrated in 1916, and it continues to bring Gator Nation back to Gainesville year after year. Around campus, festivities will include the Gator Growl pep rally, Gator Gallop, and other special events. Florida owns a 72-26-2 record in Homecoming games all-time, including a 30-5 mark since 1989.

The UAA will also induct eight Gator Greats and one Honorary Letterwinner into the UF Athletic Hall of Fame. The list of Gator Greats on this year’s class includes Elizabeth Beisel (Women’s Swimming & Diving), Marcin Cieslak (Men’s Swimming & Diving), Francesca Enea (Softball), Chas Henry (Football), Genevieve LaCaze (Women’s Track & Field), Hannah Rogers (Softball), Preston Tucker (Baseball) and Scottie Wilbekin (Men’s Basketball). The eight Gator Greats were part of two NCAA and 12 Southeastern Conference title teams and claimed four NCAA and 21 SEC individual crowns. In addition, former soccer head coach Becky Burleigh will enter as an Honorary Letterwinner.

Furthermore, GatorMade Week will raise awareness and promote the initiatives of the GatorMade program. GatorMade is a player-led and purpose-driven initiative that empowers its football scholar-athletes with opportunities to learn, serve, and lead.
