The weekend is rapidly approaching and Gators fans are waiting with bated breath for the opening kickoff of the 2021 season this Saturday. The orange and blue gear is all unpacked, the grills are getting prepped up and the coolers await their frosty beverages. But before we jump into the gridiron action, we have another game of football coming up tonight in the state’s capital. You know to find it: go north until you smell it, then west until you step in it.
Here is the latest news from the Gator Nation.
