The in-state rivalry game between the Florida Gators and Florida State Seminoles will be held at night in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for the first time since 2011.

It was announced Monday that Florida-Florida State has been given a 7:30 p.m. kickoff and will air live nationally on ESPN. CBS, which had first choice on Nov. 28, chose to air the Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn instead.

The Gators expect to enter the contest against the Seminoles looking to finish the regular season as a one-loss team, poised to meet the Crimson Tide in the 2015 SEC Championship Game the following week on Dec. 5.

Florida State, which has already lost twice this season, looks to regain some momentum as campaign comes to a close with a rivalry win over UF. The Seminoles have an opportunity to knock the Gators out of the College Football Playoff picture with an upset.
