Seven student-athletes will be suspended for Florida’s season opener against Michigan.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The University of Florida football team will be without its full roster for its season opener against Michigan.
Statement from Head Coach Jim McElwain
“We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing. Action has been taken – they have missed some practice and will miss the Michigan game. We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward.”
The following student-athletes have been suspended for Florida’s season opener against Michigan.
James Houston, Kadeem Telfort, Keivonnis Davis, Antonio Callaway, Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones, and Ventrell Miller.
The 2017 AdvoCare Classic kicks off the college football season with a marquee cross-sectional matchup between the Florida Gators and Michigan Wolverines, which will be played on Saturday, Sept. 2, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
It will be the first-ever regular season meeting between the two programs.
