It took longer than usual to come together due to the Florida Gators being unable to play home games this fall due to the renovation of the Stephen C. O’Connell Center, but the program has finally released its complete nonconference schedule for the 2016-17 season.

The Gators will play 12 of their 13 nonconference games at neutral sites (nine) or on the road (three) with Florida playing it’s home opener on Dec. 21 against Arkansas-Little Rock. UF has scheduled six of those neutral-site games within the state, playing three in Orlando, two in Jacksonville (plus one true away game) and one each in Tampa, Sunrise and Lakeland. The Gators will also play at Florida State in Tallahassee.

As previously reported by OnlyGators.com, Florida will compete in the AdvoCare Invitational (Orlando), Jimmy V. Classic (New York) and Orange Bowl Basketball Classic (Sunrise), playing in the latter for the 16th time in 17 seasons.

The Gators will end their nonconference campaign after the SEC schedule begins for the second consecutive year when Florida travels to face Oklahoma in the fourth annual SEC/Big 12 Challenge. The game, one of 10 between the conferences played that day, will be held during a special bye week created by the SEC in order to fit the contest in.

Take a look at the entire nonconference slate below.
