During last night’s ABC telecast of C.’s 38-13 win over Cincinnati, it was officially announced that this Friday’s War on I-4 rivalry matchup at Raymond James Stadium will have a 4:15 p.m. kickoff time and will be televised nationally on ESPN.

As we all know, last year’s epic installment of the in-state rivalry captivated the entire nation, drawing the third-highest audience for an ABC 3:30 p.m. Black Friday game since 2002. The SB Nation College Football mothership tabbed it as the best regular season game of 2017 and the third best overall just behind the Alabama-UGA national championship game and the UGA-Oklahoma semifinal in the Rose Bowl.

We’ll see if this year’s game can live up to last ye...hahahahaha, nope.
