After suspension of first game, Gators prepare to move on to Eastern Michigan



The fate of Florida's suspended season-opener against Idaho remains up in the air, but the Gators are preparing to move on to this week's game against Eastern Michigan.

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said he hopes to have a final decision in the next couple of days concerning the game against Idaho which was suspended after nearly a 3-hour delay this past Saturday due to severe lightning and heavy rain at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

“Obviously there's a lot of questions out there as it relates to Saturday night's game, what's going on moving forward,” Foley said. “We don't have those answers yet.  . . . A lot of people we've got to talk to. Obviously we need to reach out to the University of Idaho. My staff and I met (Monday) morning and talked about possible scenarios. Again, when we have the answers we'll give them to you. There's just a lot of different moving parts there. We're not trying to be secretive, there's just a lot of different things we have to consider. And we are working through those things as we speak.”

Florida coach Will Muschamp talked about the suspended game and looked ahead to Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan. You can watch him here:
