The SEC announced its television and tip times for the 2017-18 basketball season.

Coming off its fifth Elite Eight appearance in the last seven years, Florida will get plenty of national exposure.

Of UF’s 18 conference games, four will air on CBS, six will air on the SEC Network and eight will either air on ESPN or ESPN2.

Florida’s SEC opener at Exactech Arena against Vanderbilt on Dec. 30 will air on ESPN2 with a time to be determined. Both of UF’s games against Kentucky will have marquee TV time slots. UF’s first game against the Wildcats on Jan. 20 at Rupp Arena will tip at 8:15 p.m. and air on ESPN, setting it up as the possible ESPN College GameDay matchup. Florida’s regular season against Kentucky on March 3 at Exactech Arena will tip at noon and air on CBS.
