If you can’t make it to Gainesville for one of the first two games of the 2015 football season don’t fret, the Florida Gators will be nationally broadcast each of the first three weeks this season. If you do plan on coming to Gainesville to take in the Swamp in person, you won’t have to sweat it out in the hot September sun either.

The SEC released the game times for the first three games of the season and the Gators will open up with back-to-back night games in The Swamp, hosting the New Mexico State Aggies on September, 5 at 7:30 on SEC Network and then will play host the following week to the East Carolina Pirates at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.

The Gators will then travel to Lexington, Kentucky for their third game and third consecutive night game when the Kentucky Wildcats host Florida at 7:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.

This is the first time since 2006 that the Gators will open the season with three night games and the first time since 2011 that they will open their home schedule with back-to-back games under the lights.

About Nick de la Torre

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
