Florida's football games with Tennessee and Georgia have ended up where they usually do -- on CBS.

CBS and the SEC announced Tuesday that the UF-Tennessee and UF-Georgia games will be televised nationally with 3:30 p.m. starts.

The Gators play Tennessee on Sept. 16 in The Swamp and face Georgia in Jacksonville on Oct. 28.

This will be the 15th consecutive season that the UF-UGA rivalry has been televised nationally by CBS. Also, 19 of the last 21 meetings between the Gators and Volunteers have aired on the network.

The CBS announce team consists of Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson and Allie LaForce.

That makes three UF games slotted for 3:30 p.m., as the AdvoCare Classic against Michigan will be played Saturday, Sept. 2, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
