The Gators make their official 2012 debut at The Swamp today. Well, sort of.
They don’t open the season until Sept. 1 against Bowling Green, but the Gators have their annual Media Day today at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
The event is not open to the public – Verizon Fan Day is scheduled Aug. 18 at the O’Connell Center – but head coach Will Muschamp and dozens of players are meeting with the media to preview the upcoming season.
If you want to stay updated in real-time this afternoon starting around 4:15 p.m., follow @GatorZoneScott or @GatorZoneFB on Twitter. You can also check out GatorZone.com later this evening for more in-depth coverage.
