Florida vs. Georgia Southern: Gators' cupcake game gets 2 p.m. kickoff, pay-per-view

USA TODAY Sports

Florida's game with Georgia Southern will be televised on a pay-per-view broadcast.

Florida's November 23 game with FCS foe Georgia Southern will kick off at 2 p.m. Eastern and be televised via a pay-per-view broadcast, the university announced Tuesday.

From Florida's release:

Per Southeastern Conference television contracts, when an SEC team does not have its game selected for live TV by one of the SEC’s television partners (i.e. CBS, ESPN, SEC Network, etc.), it is permitted to offer that game live on a statewide basis on pay-per-view. Therefore, this game is not available to Sun Sports to air live on its network, but Sun Sports can produce the telecast and make it available to Florida cable/satellite systems and commercial establishments to deliver via pay-per-view.

The usual replays of the game will air on Sun Sports on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. in a the "Breakfast With the Gators" and at 11 p.m. on Tuesday night.

This marks the eighth straight year that Florida's played a non-conference opponent at home in November and had the broadcast relegated to pay-per-view: Florida's games against Western Carolina in 2006, Florida Atlantic in 2007, The Citadel in 2008, Florida International in 2009, Appalachian State in 2010, Furman in 2011, and Jacksonville State in 2012 each ended up in the same broadcast situation.

Florida is 7-0 in those games, outscoring those opponents by a 378-84 margin.
