Florida to host watch party for LSU game in The Swamp
Just because this year’s LSU-Florida game got relocated to Baton Rouge doesn’t mean The Swamp won’t be rocking Nov. 19.

The Gators on Wednesday announced their home stadium will hold a watch party that will feature food trucks and live music. The game, originally slated for Oct. 8 in Gainesville, was indefinitely suspended due to Hurricane Matthew before being rescheduled in Baton Rouge.
Florida’s cancellation and subsequent negotiations to play the game caused a bitter back-and-forth between both schools’ fans and administrators. The Tigers ended up getting another home game, set for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff, but Gator fans will still assemble in The Swamp to see how this SEC cross-division rivalry plays out.
