    Florida Set for Regional Semifinal with BYU
    The Gators are facing the Cougars for the first time since 2003.
    Katie Callahan UF

    This is the second Gators squad that has reached the Regional Semifinal as an unseeded team – the last time was in 2011, when Florida reached the Regional Final. Overall, this is Florida's 25th trip to the Regional Semifinal – the team is 16-8 in these matches.

    Florida (26-6) holds the 5-3 series advantage over the Cougars, including a 5-0 record under Mary Wise. UF also holds the NCAA series advantage between the two squads, leading 1-0.
    During the first two matches of the tournament, the Gators have not dropped a set, hitting .309. The squad is also holding opponents to a .137 hit clip. Paige Hammons is leading the offense with 5.00 kills per set, hitting .369.

    Is Ballyhoo or any other place in GNV streaming the game?

    Having Hall back really helps the gators. Gives them a good chance to spring the upset!

    New experience for many.

    We built depth with herout, too.

    Only ESPN3. BYU's cable channel doesn't even list it so the all powerful NCAA must be preventing it because in the past I have watched their matches on that channel.

    If we win the BYU match the next match versus the winner of Texas/Michigan will be on ESPNU.

    With 17 set points (yes, seventeen) in the Minn/Oregon 2nd game (final score 41-39), its obviously going to run long.

    Hopefully the start of the UF game will be delayed until television can join.

    Right, ESPN3 is in the third set of the Oregon/Minn game right now and the UF game is supposed to start in a couple minutes. Maybe because its streaming they can have two games at once? If not, that's what I was saying about holding the UF start.

    Ironically, I don't think 8PM was ever correct but might be closer to the actual start. ESPN claims it's "live now" but it has obviously been delayed.

    UF said 6:30 EST also
