When Kentucky heads to Florida on Sept. 10, it will be the featured Southeastern Conference Game of the Week, CBS Sports announced on Wednesday.

The Cats’ game versus the SEC East champion Gators will be played at 3:30 p.m. It’s the first time UK has been the Game of the Week since 2014 against then top-ranked Mississippi State.

It will be the final season calling the SEC Game of the Week for Verne Lundquist on CBS. He announced Tuesday he would be leaving his lead college football role at CBS Sports after the 2016 season.
