Florida men's basketball SEC schedule set for 2012-13
Florida's 2012-13 men's basketball schedule, complete with the conference's new 18-game league play to accommodate 14 SEC teams, has been released.
The Gators will continue to play a home-and-home annual series with Kentucky, and Fllorida will also play a home-and-home with four other SEC opponents on a rotating basis.
This season, UF's four rotating home-and-home opponents will be Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi State and Missouri. The remaining eight games will be split between home and away, with Alabama, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Vanderbilt coming to Gainesville, while the Gators travel to Auburn, LSU, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
The Gators will play 11 conference games on the ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU), four on the SEC Network and one game each on CBS, CSS and FSN. In addition, 14 games will be available for live streaming on ESPN3.com.
Florida will open SEC at home against Georgia on Jan. 9. The Gators will play four of their first six SEC games on the road after playing five of its last six non-conference games away from the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. Florida will be at home just three times during a 12-game span in December and January.
