Florida, UCF officially announce 3-game football series
It’s official, Florida and UCF are going to face each other in Gainesville and Orlando in the years to come.
The long-awaited series has been debated for years, with UCF turning down Florida’s offer to play two games in Gainesville for one game in Orlando in previous years.
Now that UCF’s athletic administration and football program is under new leadership, the deal has gotten done and Gus Malzahn is scheduled to bring the Knight to the Swamp in the years to come.
The first game in the three-game series is set for 2024 in Gainesville, followed by a 2030 showdown in Orlando and concludes with another matchup in the Swamp in 2033.
Both schools celebrated the official announcement of the three-game series on Tuesday:
