The kickoff time for the Michigan-Florida matchup has been released.

Michigan and Florida will face off in the first week of the college football season on Saturday, September 2, and today ESPN released the time and channel for the contest.

The two teams will face off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. and you can catch the game on ABC.

The matchup will take place on a neutral field in Arlington, Texas. Florida is favored in the matchup, according to ESPN's FPI Rating, but just by a hair. It gives the Gators a 52.5 percent chance of victory over the Wolverines. It's essentially a coin flip.

Following the Michigan-Florida game, Alabama and Florida State will face off at 8:00 p.m. E.T. on the same channel in the primetime matchup, so you might as well stay glued to your couch all day on Saturday. (Akron and Penn State will play at noon on ABC as a nice little appetizer).

It's going to be a phenomenal opening weekend for college football, and it can't come soon enough.
