ESPN and the Southeastern Conference announced the inaugural game at Florida Ballpark at Alfred A. McKethan Field will be telecast live via SEC Network, with the first pitch of No. 1 Florida’s season-opening game against No. 21 Miami set for 3 p.m., Friday, Feb. 19.

First pitches for the Saturday and Sunday games will both be 1 p.m., with live streaming available via SECNetwork + and the ESPN app. All three games will also feature radio broadcasts via ESPN 98.1FM/850AM WRUF.

The Gators, who are the unanimous preseason No. 1 team, have won 15 of their last 18 games against Miami, including last year’s sweep of the then-No. 1 Hurricanes in Coral Gables. Last year’s series marked Florida’s fourth sweep of the Hurricanes under head coach Kevin O’Sullivan, and the Gators have won each of the last six regular-season series. Florida’s overall record against Miami under Coach O’Sullivan is 34-13.
