GAINESVILLE -- Better leave your house early for the Gators' season opener. Florida opens the 2007 football season with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff on Sept.1 against Western Kentucky. Blah!!!
The ESPN networks passed on the Gators in favor of Oklahoma State at Georiga (5:45 p.m., ESPN 2) and Kansas State at Auburn (7:45 p.m., ESPN). Lincoln Financial will televise the Gators' home opener.
If you live in Miami-Dade or Broward counties and you're planning on attending the season opener, I suggest you pack up the RV and leave today.
