The Gators will hold the first of eight open football practices tonight starting at 7:40 at Dizney Lacrosse Stadium on the UF campus.

Parking is available for all open practices at the lacrosse complex or in the parking deck at the Phillips Performing Arts Center.

The second open practice is Friday, also at 7:40 p.m.

The Gator Booster season ticket holder exclusive practice Saturday is scheduled to begin at 10:45 a.m. Season ticket holders will be admitted to enter practice with a special ticket inside their 2014 ticket book (mailed Monday) or with their Gator Booster card.

In addition to the exclusive open practice, season ticket holders will have an opportunity to tour the Evans Champions Club and Holloway Touchdown Terrace before the open practice from 9-10:30 a.m. on Saturday. If interested in a tour, plan to arrive early for parking as commencement ceremonies will be taking place at 10 a.m. in the O'Connell Center.

Fans will be allowed to take pictures and video during select periods of practice. Upon entering Dizney Stadium, a sign will direct fans to which periods fans will be able to shoot for that day's practice.

Select players will be available following each open practice for autographs.
