How the 2015 football season, head coach Jim McElwain‘s first at the helm, will wind up for the Florida Gators definitely remains to be seen, but at least it is now known how they will kick things off over the first three weeks.

On Thursday, the Southeastern Conference officially announced the times and television assignments for the first three weeks of the 2015 campaign.

For the Gators, they are as follows:

The Gators are 1-0 all-time against the Aggies.

UF and ECU will square off for the second time in three games as Florida triumphed 28-20 on Jan. 3 in the 2015 Birmingham Bowl.

Saturday, Sept. 19 at Kentucky — 7:30 p.m., SEC Network

The Gators are 48-17 all-time against the Wildcats with 28 straight wins in the series dating back to 1986. It is the longest active winning streak in the nation between teams that play annually.

    Thanks Adam! Nice to see the schedule. Very favorable this year. Even with the thin lines, I can see a 10-2 season at worst with very real possibilities of beating LSU and FSU

    10-2 at worst huh…. you’re even dumber than I thought.

      haha. Do you just post on here to put me down? That is all the posting I have ever seen you do. As far as “dumber than you thought”, clearly you don’t think very well. The correct grammar would be “more dumb”, as dumber isn’t correct. Secondly, One who is “dumb” is unable to speak. The word you actually mean to use is stupid. At which point, again “more stupid” would still be the correct usage. Kudos for trying though.
