GAINESVILLE, FL (RNN) - No. 16 Florida will play its first game against a non-ranked opponent since November when it hosts Fresno State on Saturday.

The Gators (8-2) wrapped up a grueling three-game stretch against ranked opponents when they took down No. 15 Memphis at Madison Square Garden last Tuesday. They are currently 2-2 against ranked opponents this season.

Casey Prather leads the Gators with an average 18.7 points per game.

The Bulldogs (6-5) are looking to snap a two-game losing streak. They are 1-4 in road games so far this season and are playing their third road game in a row. They fell to California 67-56 last week due in part to poor field goal shooting, making only 19 of its 58 attempts.

Marvelle Harris leads Fresno State with an average 17.9 points per game.

Tipoff at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center is at 4:30 p.m. ET and will air on the FOX Sports Network.
