2019 Florida-Miami game almost set in stone

The Florida Gators have always had three big rivals: the Florida State Seminoles, the Georgia Bulldogs and the Miami Hurricanes. The Gators have only played the latter team six times in the last three decades, but it looks like a deal for a future game is almost done.

The Gators and Hurricanes announced that they were closing in on a deal back in October, but there has been no kind of public discussion about the game since, until today.

Robbie Andreu of The Gainesville Sun reported that Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said the game is close to being finalized and it is just a matter of signing the contracts.

Foley did mention, however, that there are no current plans to renew the rivalry long-term. He said that this game is likely going to be a one-off, neutral site match-up.

The Florida Gators last played the Hurricanes in 2013 with Miami winning 21-16. This win pushed the Hurricanes’ series lead out 29-26.
