UF Football and Basketball Games Overlap On Jan. 3

BREVARD COUNTY, Florida -- Football or basketball what’s a Gator fan to watch?  It’s never before happened before!  The Space Coast Gator Club will be hosting watch parties for both the University of Florida’s football and basketball teams at the same time.


That's because on Saturday, January 3rd, the Birmingham Bowl football game between UF vs. East Carolina begins at 12:00 p.m. and the UF basketball team has a game versus UCONN at 2:00 pm. 


“This is the first time we have been faced with this type of situation.  I guess we will split TV’s between football and basketball after halftime.  It’s a “Gator Doubleheader" [that] should make for interesting watch parties,” says Rich Rosa Director of Community Service and Membership.


All four watch party locations will show the first half of the football game and then divide the room between the football and basketball games. The watch parties are open to the public and Gator fans might want to arrive early to ensure a good vantage point if you want to see both games, at the same time.


The Gator club’s official watch party locations are Broken Barrel Tavern, Palm Bay, Old School Pizza Midtown, Melbourne, Normans Raw Bar and Grill, Cocoa, and Dixie Crossroads, Titusville.
