One of the premiere games on that Saturday, September 2 will be a Texas-sized showdown in Arlington between the Michigan Wolverines and the Florida Gators. The Read Optional's Trey Wallace first reported the news.
The No. 16-ranked Gators open the season against MI in the Advocare Classic on September 2 in Houston against No. 9 MI. Callaway was suspended for 2016 spring football workouts as the incident was investigated, but he eventually was found not responsible during a UF student code of conduct hearing.
Callaway was also cited for marijuana possession during a traffic stop in May while in the auto with a guy who has a lengthy rap sheet. Davis has appeared in 17 games on the defensive line, including five starts last season.
Callaway, defensive end Keivonnis Davis, defensive lineman Richerd Desir-Jones, linebacker James Houston, linebacker Ventrell Miller, defensive lineman Jordan Smith and offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort won't be allowed to play September 2 against the Wolverines in Arlington, Texas.
Houston, Telfort and Miller are all true freshmen, with Telfort being a Booker T. Washington High alum and Houston hailing from American Heritage-Plantation.
Telfort was competing for a backup spot at offensive tackle and took first-team reps at points during the couple practices when starting left tackle Martez Ivey was out. And number two, learn to talk the guy next to him.
The other six players suspended for undisclosed reasons were expected to play smaller roles for the Gators.
Speaking Aug. 3 at the team's media day, McElwain did not anticipate anyone would miss the season opener. Miller, Houston and Smith are first-year defenders.
