In the continued effort to achieve the Gators’ goal of playing 10 Power 5 opponents each season, Florida and Arizona State have agreed to play a home-and-home series in 2028 and 2031. 

The first matchup will be at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., and the return trip will be in Gainesville three years later. These two schools have yet to meet on the gridiron.

Florida recently added home-and-home series with Colorado, Miami, Texas, and Utah, in addition to extending its contract with Florida State as well.
