The No. 3 Florida Gators open up The Swamp for the 2020 season Saturday against SEC East foe South Carolina.

The game is set to kick off at noon ET.

The Gators lit up the scoreboard last week in a 51-35 win at Ole Miss. UF put up 642 yards — a school record against an SEC opponent — including 416 yards from quarterback Kyle Trask. The senior threw for six touchdowns, four of which went to tight end Kyle Pitts.

The Gamecocks dropped their opener 31-27 to Tennessee. Star wideout Shi Smith caught 10 passes for 140 yards in the loss. South Carolina is coached by Will Muschamp, who went 28-21 in four seasons at Gainesville.
