Florida's first trip to Missouri will kick off at 12:21 p.m. Eastern on October 19 and be televised by SEC Network affiliate stations, the SEC announced on Monday.
Because Missouri's in the Central Time Zone, the Gators will be beginning play at 11:21 a.m. local time — their first game to begin before noon local time since a 2010 game at Vanderbilt that Florida won, 55-14, by putting up 34 points in the second quarter.

Florida is 1-1 all-time against Missouri, and has never played the Tigers in Columbia. Missouri beat Florida by a 20-18 score in the 1966 Sugar Bowl, and the Gators beat the Tigers, 14-7, in a game in Gainesville in 2012.
