The Gators are debuting black uniforms and are asking fans to blackout Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. A noon kickoff might deter some fans from wearing black clothing, but a sold-out game should provide a good atmosphere no matter what.
Also in the noon slate are Texas A&M at Ole Miss (ESPN), Jacksonville State at South Carolina (ESPNU) and UConn at Tennessee (SEC Network). Auburn and Vanderbilt (4 p.m. ET) will air immediately following the Volunteers’ game on the SEC Network, and the Mississippi State-Kentucky round out the three-game slate on the channel.
Florida is also honoring members of the armed forces, veterans and local first responders during the Arkansas game with a Saluting Those Who Serve theme. Veterans will speak to the team throughout the week and game tickets will be donated to local military heroes ahead of Saturday.
