The Florida Gators are going to be playing a rare non-conference regular-season football game outside of the state of Florida. But it’s not going to happen for quite some time.

UF announced Wednesday that the school has scheduled a home-and-home series with Colorado for the 2028 and 2029 football seasons.

The Gators will play host to the Buffaloes in Gainesville on Sept. 9, 2028, and then travel to Boulder the following year to face Colorado.

Florida and Colorado have never met on the football field.

Since 1991, the Gators have played only two non-conference regular-season games outside the state of Florida, both losses.

UF fell at Syracuse in 1991 and to Michigan in the 2017 season-opener in Arlington, Texas.


    • You’re on! As ’65 says, hopefully I’ll still be on the planet by then…..but if not, enjoy a Coors for ol’ Gator-6 and watch Florida mop up some PAC-12 butt. Unless, of course, Colorado comes to it’s senses by then and get’s back in the Big-12…..in which case it’ll be Big-12 butt.

  1. Georgia wins a NC every year in April and May. My favorite year is when they were ranked #1 at the beginning of 2008, and then got treated like a farm animal by Alabama, which is indigenous to Alabama and Georgia. Then we treated them the same way a Tenn fan treats his mule, 49-10 I think. I think Kirby Smart was having a hard time finding his third grade coloring book when Georgia last won a NC. Gas was about 75 cents a gallon. There were only two genders. Yea I think Georgia might be a little overrated.
