Gators move up in both polls, South Carolina game to kickoff at 3:30 p.m.



CBS has announced that it will telecast the South Carolina at Florida game, which will kickoff Saturday at 3:30 p.m., at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville.

The Gators (6-0, 5-0 SEC) are coming off a 31-17 victory over Vanderbilt and have moved up in both the Associated Press and the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Florida is ranked No. 3 in the AP poll (up one spot) and ranked No. 4 in the USA Today poll - up two spots from last week. South Carolina (6-1, 4-1) is ranked No. 9 in the AP poll, No. 8 in the USA Today poll. 

Both Florida and South Carolina remain undefeated in the SEC East, which makes Saturday's game critical for both team's chances to make it to Atlanta and the SEC Championship game. But Florida coach Will Muschamp is trying to keep things balanced in Gainesvill this week.

"Because it’s the next one, it’s the biggest game of the year,'' Muschamp said. "Because it's the next one."

Alabama remains the unanimous No. 1 team in both polls. LSU, which lost to the Gators last week, is ranked No. 6 in both polls.
