The Florida Gators will host the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday, September 16 at 3:30 p.m. in Gainesville on CBS — just as was scheduled months ago — despite the effects of Hurricane Irma, Florida announced in conjunction with the SEC on Tuesday.
Rivals reporter Jesse Simonton broke the news minutes before the SEC’s announcement.

“While we know how important it is for this campus and the Gainesville community to host a game, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those that have been impacted by the storm, and we are thankful for the support Floridians have received during this time,” said Athletic Director Scott Stricklin.
