» NOTES
Head coach Billy Donovan on the schedule: “I think we benefited last year from a challenging non-conference schedule and getting a couple of quality wins early in the season. We’re going to stay with the same scheduling philosophy and we’ve put together another competitive non-conference schedule.”
– Florida’s opener against Florida Tech on Oct. 28 is the earliest start in school history.
– UF will face UNC-W, OSU and NC A&T as part of the Global Sports Invitational.
– The Gators play in three more events during the regular season: the Florida Citrus Shootout with UCF, the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic against KSU and the BB&T Classic vs. American.

    It’s about time that the non-conference schedule was released. After the first 5 teams listed above the rest of the schedule, the competition for the Gators really drops off. Radford??

    When will the SEC schedule for the Gators come out Adam?

  2. JW says:

    I like the Kent State and Rhode Island games. Those could be more difficult than people think.
