The Florida Gators face off against the Massachusetts Minutemen today in a college football game on the first big-time Saturday night of the 2016 schedule. One team enters the year trying to show it’s worthy of the national ranking it’s barely clinging to, while the other team looks for a huge upset win. Tonight’s game has an early start time and will air on a specialty TV channel as well as being available on a live stream online option.
Florida enters the 2016 season ranked number twenty-five in the nation, giving it a long way to climb in order to compete for a top four national championship playoff spot. The UF Gators are also looking to contend in the SEC conference this season. But first they’ll have to get past today’s season opening non conference matchup at home in Gainesville. Massachusetts travels southward to try to pull off what would be a major upset victory on the road, even as the Gators simply try to avoid falling for a trap game today.
Today’s Florida Gators vs Massachusetts football game will have a start time schedule of 7:30pm eastern time and airs on TV channel SEC Network. The game is also airing as a live stream online.
