Through a statement on their school website, the University of Florida announced that it meant to play their SEC matchup against the Tennessee Volunteers at Ben Griffin Stadium as planned.

The game will kickoff at 3:30 p.m.

Florida's game against Northern Colorado last week was cancelled due to the storm. The stadium sustained only minor damage to signage.

"The University of Florida has been diligent in assessing the impact of Hurricane Irma on the Gainesville community and has made a thoughtful decision in moving forward with the game", Sankey said in a statement.

Sharief said she did not have any details about the causes of death, and that authorities are investigating. Police are going to the 42 other assisted living facilities in the area to check on those other residents.

The aftermath of Hurricane Irma put the location of the game in jeopardy. MI was No. 11 at the time of the game against Florida.

Florida officials assessed all resources, most notably whether enough first responders and staffers would be available to work the game and make it a safe environment. The lines opened with a 5.5 point spread for the Volunteers to cover with a posted total of 49 and since then, they have remained unchanged.

Fans are asked to plan ahead for traffic delays before the game as storm cleanup continues.

Florida, while winning the past two SEC East titles, has been able to rely on its defense. It will be a nice two weeks off between games, following the 33-17 thumping they took from MI.

Either way, the Gators, under offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier, present a standard offensive look compared to the flexbone attack Tennessee faced in a season-opening win over Georgia Tech and the motion-heavy offense the Vols saw in a 42-7 win over Indiana State on Saturday. The Gators have won six in a row over the Vols in the Swamp and, prior to last year's loss in Knoxville, had an 11-game winning streak over UT. Among the reasons is more than 3,300 working personnel, 17 government agencies and outside vendors are needed to conduct a game for a crowd of around 90,000 people at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Florida will challenge them on the ground, so we will see what the front seven is about by game's end.

The SEC is staying in communication with both athletics departments.

The SEC clearly doesn't want a repeat of a year ago, when Florida and LSU engaged in a lengthy - and often acrimonious - discussion over the status of their game, which was postponed by Hurricane Michael.
