Kickoff Time, Channel Set for Florida Gators vs. Missouri Tigers
Kickoff time has been set for noon ET when the Florida Gators (2-2) host the Missouri Tigers (2-2) on Oct. 8 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla., the SEC announced on Monday. ESPNU will broadcast the matchup.
Missouri has been Florida’s homecoming opponent every year that the Tigers have traveled to The Swamp since 2014, and that is no different in 2022.
The circumstances this year are slightly different than when the Gators hosted the Tigers last year. UF defeated UM in the Florida homecoming. 41-17, a year removed from the Florida defeating Missouri 23-6 in Columbia, Mo.
This time, the Gators are looking to bounce back against the Tigers, as the 24-23 victory in Missouri’s favor last season was the final nail in former Florida head coach Dan Mullen’s proverbial coffin. The next day, he was fired and replaced by Billy Napier.
