Florida Gators vs FGCU Eagles takes place in the NCAA 2013 tournament on Friday night, and will round off an explosive two days of Sweet 16 round action for March Madness. The game is scheduled to tip off at 9.57 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Florida Gulf Coast has become the first No. 15 seeded team to reach the Sweet Sixteen round in the tournament's history, destroying most fans' predictions for the tournament. Some believe that this could be the end of their run but they will definitely now feel they can push on and get into the Elite Eight and even beyond.
The Eagles have shown a fearlessness of all opposition that makes them dangerous to higher seeded opponents, and many now believe that there is no reason why they cannot take down the mighty Gators tonight as well.
The Eagles have the spotlight on them in the NCAA tournament now; having come from playing in front of relatively small crowds, they are now on a crash course with Dunk City and will be playing in front of tens of thousands of fans at Cowboys Stadium. It is the thing dreams are made of, and they will not want things to end here tonight.
The Florida Gators will definitely be feeling the pressure on their shoulders in this clash. They will be absolutely expected to win this one, and anything else but a win will be considered a disaster by many. In comparison the Eagles are running free from pressure, and look very content with their consistent underdogs tag. Make no mistake about it, the Eagles are having the time of their lives and they will be pumped up for the game tonight.
