Florida adds 2021 home game with in-state team
Get ready for an amplified talking season as long as Lane Kiffin is in Boca Raton, Florida. Florida has reportedly agreed to a 2021 home game with the Florida Atlantic Owls, currently coached by Kiffin.
The Owls will travel to Gainesville for a contest on Sept. 4, 2021. It will be the fourth trip to Gainesville for the Owls. The Gators already have games scheduled that season with Samford, South Florida and Florida State in the non-conference part of the schedule.
Florida has won all three games in the series, and the last meeting came in 2015, a 20-14 Gators victory.
If Kiffin remains the coach of the Owls, look for plenty of chatter about this game from the former Tennessee coach and Alabama offensive coordinator who knows the SEC well and often comments or tweets analysis about news events related to the league.
