Orange and Blue game date set

The Florida Gators will conclude spring camp and hole its annual Orange and Blue spring game on Saturday April 13th.

The kickoff time and TV coverage have not been announced at this time.

“What an exciting weekend this will be for Gator Nation,” coach Dan Mullen said in a press release. “I can’t wait for our staff and players to be back home in the Swamp.”
As they have done in the past the Gators will have a loaded sports weekend on tap for the spring game. The baseball team will be hosting South Carolina (4/11-4-13), Lacrosse will host ECU and the women’s tennis team will also be hosting South Carolina that weekend.

More details about the spring game will be announced when plans are finalized.

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.
