At least two of the Gators’ biggest games of the 2021 football season will be in the SEC’s marquee slot.

Florida’s game at Alabama on Sept. 18 will kick off at 3:30 and air on CBS, the network announced Wednesday. That contest at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium will be a rematch of last year’s SEC title game.

The annual Florida-Georgia rivalry game in Jacksonville on Oct. 30 also will keep its traditional 3:30 slot on CBS.
