Florida volleyball's first match in O'Connell Center; season opener against Texas


Florida volleyball team finally had the opportunity to play in the O'Connell Center, Saturday, in an exhibition match against Coastal Carolina. And while fans and players have built the anxiety to play in the O'Dome, the team is switching gears as they'll be competing against top-15 ranked teams in their first two games of the season.

One match-up against Nebraska, but the first is Friday, August 25 against No. 1 ranked University of Texas.

The No. 12 ranked Gators have lost their leading point scorer, Alex Holston. But the team says they’re not going to dwell in the past and look to progress as collective.

The team has a number of returning players including their experienced five member senior class and few rookies that already proven their ready to compete.

Florida will match-up with Texas at 7 PM on Friday and are trying to break a record number of attendance with 6, 000 fans. First 2,000 fans and 1,000 students will receive free t-shirts.
