Florida and Miami will open the college football season Aug. 24 at the Camping World Kickoff. The game is set to start at 7 p.m. ET.
It's the earliest start date for any major college football season since 2003. It is also the earliest ever start for Florida or Miami, plus it's even rarer that a big Power 5 matchup will occur in Week 0.
Last season, the Gators went 10–3 with a win over Michigan in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl, while the Hurricanes ended the year at 7–6 with a loss to Wisconsin in the Pinstripe Bowl.
