Not that there was any threat that the football rivalry between Florida and Florida State would be ending anytime soon, but the two schools did announce Tuesday that they have reached a four-year contract extension to continue playing each other through the 2022 season.
The first year of the new agreement begins this season with the game being played in The Swamp on Nov. 30.
The Gators and Seminoles have played each other every year since the series began in 1958. It’s been the traditional regular-season ending game for both schools since 1980.
UF leads the series 35-26-2. The Gators snapped a five-game losing streak in the rivalry last November with a 41-14 thrashing of the Seminoles in Tallahassee. UF has not beaten FSU in Gainesville since 2009.
