Sanford, FL., January 16th, 2018 – Presented by Sunniland, the 2018 Orange & Blue Debut spring game returns for Florida Gators football. For the first time in a few years, it will again be held in its traditional slot on a Saturday afternoon.
Florida has announced that the spring football game will be played on Saturday for the first time since 2015. The April 14 game will kick off at 3 p.m. ET, a couple hours later than it had begun in the past when held on Saturdays.
