It's on: Gators will play Tennessee at the The Swamp Saturday as scheduled


Hurricane Irma won't stop one of the biggest rivalries in college football.

The SEC announced today the Gators will play Tennessee at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium as scheduled. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on CBS.

Authorities say fans should expect heavy traffic because storm cleanup is still going on. They encourage fans to show up at least 30 minutes before game time. RTS Shuttle services will be operational Saturday.

"While we know how important it is for this campus and the Gainesville community to host a game, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those that have been impacted by the storm, and we are thankful for the support Floridians have received during this time," UF Athletic Director Scott Stricklin said in a statement.

Other home Gators sporting events, including matches for soccer and volleyball, will proceed as scheduled.
