Florida defeated Florida Atlantic 35-14 at home in Week 1. USF lost 45-0 on the road at NC State in Week 1. Saturday’s game is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, airing on ABC.
South Florida currently does not have an on-campus stadium, though the school plans to build one. USF plays its home games at Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The stadium’s listed seating capacity is 65,618.
USF is based in Tampa, though there are many Florida alumni and fans in the area and around the state, so it’s safe to expect the Gators will have many visiting fans in the stands.
UF scheduled a three-game series with USF as part of a “2-for-1.” The Gators will host USF in 2022 and 2025.
