It is time to get excited Gator fans because Florida sports are on the horizon! While we still have a week to wait for the college football season to begin, one sport is already three games deep into its nascent season while another gets started tonight. So enjoy the calm while you can because soon there will be more Florida athletics news than you can shake a stick at. For now, here is a look at the latest from the Gator Nation.

Both of UCF's goals came in the first half and the Gators missed several opportunities throughout the game to erase the goose egg on the scoreboard. The Orange and Blue's season record now stands at 0-2-1 under first-year head coach Tony Amato. The squad wraps up its homestand on Sunday with a match against the Miami Hurricanes on Sunday starting at 1 p.m. EDT. The game will be broadcast on the SEC Network+ and can be heard on ESPN 98.1 FM 850.
