Florida's Season Opener With Idaho Postponed Due To Heavy Rain

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida will have to wait at least another week to try to end a seven-game losing streak.

Florida's season opener against Idaho was postponed because of unsafe field conditions following heavy rain.

Florida Field became unplayable after hours of downpours. The season opener for both teams started after a nearly three-hour lightning delay -- and then stopped after 10 seconds.

Game officials, athletic directors and the Southeastern Conference called the game and offered four possible outcomes:

The teams could resume the game at a later date. They could end the game with a determined final score. They could forfeit of the game. Or they could declare a "no contest."
