No. 8 Florida vs. Alabama
When/where: Noon; O'Connell Center, Gainesville
TV/radio: ESPN; 1250-AM
Records: Florida 22-5, 12-3 SEC; Alabama 19-9, 11-4
Notable: Alabama sits one game behind Florida for first in the SEC. … UF has won five in a row in the series and seven of eight. … Alabama is coached by Anthony Grant, Florida coach Billy Donovan's friend and ex-assistant. Donovan said the friendship is irrelevant for the game's two hours: "It's really between both teams. We know … Alabama is going to be a real challenge."
