Harvin Freshman of the Week/Kentucky Kick Set

This all according to the folks over at

University of Florida wide receiver Percy Harvin (Virginia Beach, Va.) has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.

Harvin caught four passes for a team-leading 99 yards and a touchdown in the Gators' 42-0 home win over UCF on Saturday. The scoring catch - the first of Harvin's career - came in the first quarter when he caught a short pass over the middle from senior quarterback Chris Leak (Charlotte, N.C.), eluded several defenders and raced 58 yards for the touchdown. He also carried the ball twice for 11 yards, giving him 110 total yards on a day in which UF gained 637 total yards as a team, a figure that ranks as the sixth-highest total in Florida Field history.

Kickoff for the University of Florida football game against Kentucky, scheduled for Sept. 23 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, will be at 7:45 p.m. (ET). The game will be televised by ESPN.

The Gators, who defeated Kentucky, 49-28, last season in Lexington, are 18-18 all-time in games televised on ESPN.

SEC Night games are just electric, no matter where they are.  Our one 8 pm kickoff last year vs the Vols in the Swamp was insane, and I think that the later kickoff will produce a more interesting game than the one we may have been expecting against the Wildcats squad.  Now I'm really looking forward to the UK matchup.

And on Harvin, I'm expecting a ton more accolades for the talented WR before his stay in Gainesville is done.  He is good.
