When the 2019 college football season kicks off, the Miami Hurricanes and Florida Gators will meet for the first time since 2013 and only the seventh time since 1987. The season-opener will take place in Orlando, with fans already excited for the reigniting of the rivalry.
Unfortunately, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley doesn’t anticipate the 2019 matchup starting a permanent series against the Hurricanes.
“No, I do not see them on our schedule on a regular basis,” Foley said in an interview with WRUF, via SEC Country. “I think when you are asking your football team to play eight games in this league and Florida State that is a tough slate. This league is obviously as good as it gets and Florida State is as good as it gets.”
It’s unfortunate that the two sides can’t work out an agreement for a regular series, but let’s hope the two teams can find a way to play more than once every six years or so.
