Gators, ‘Noles extend rivalry through 2018

Jameis Winston AP

Late last week, Florida State athletic director Stan Wilcox publicly addressed the importance of keeping in-state rival Florida on its future schedules.  With that heated in-state rivalry set to expire this year, both programs have agreed on the importance.

The Gators confirmed Thursday morning that its series with the Seminoles has been extended through the 2018 season.  The 2015 and 2017 games will be played in Gainesville, while the 2016 and 2018 matchups will be contested in Tallahassee.

The most recent contract between the two schools had been set to expire following the 2014 game.

The two teams have met on the gridiron 58 times, with the first coming in 1958.  The Gators own a 34-22-2 edge in the all-time series, although the Seminoles have won three of the last four.  In those three wins, FSU has outscored UF 89-21.

    How interesting… an in-state out of conference rivalry that still means something….

    Take a lesson A&M and UT… and make it happen!

    It should just be a state law that these two state schools must play each other ever single year.

    sfsugator,

    FSU has never run off 5 in a row. UF will rebound and FSU will decline, it is the ebb and flow of the rivalry.

    @gatorprof: It is a state law. It became state law after your yellow belly gators dropped Miami off your schedule and then tried to drop FSU off your schedule.

    @sfsugator: Keep dreamin! P.S. Did you enjoy your bowl game? Oh that’s right, you didn’t have enough wins to even get to a bowl game. Don’t see Will Muschump leading you to the promise land.

    Oh yeah, cause has really dominated us here lately! How many years in a row have y’all beat us???? I’ll wait! Funny how y’all have amnesia about them 7 straight years. Enjoy it while you can cause UF will be whooping you like the little sisters you are again and normalcy will be restored. #YallSkrong

    FSU fans, don’t get over confident. Great rivalries are great for a reason. Also, NC repeats are rare. Assuming it will happen is usually foolish

    Duval gator,

    Hashtags serve no purpose in the comments of this site.

    Prof was right, this is a back and forth rivalry and appears to go in waves. I have a theory about that. Like it or not Miami, Florida (that is the State of Florida) is dominated by those two programs FSU and UF. For a while UF was getting the good players and the newer slate of good players not wanting to wait behind the good players on the UF bench committed to FSU. Now FSU is the school that is getting all of the good players for that very reason. Now that FSU is getting those players some will gravitate toward UF so as to not wait behind the great players FSU has been getting and the momentum will be back with the Gators.
    As for you duvalgator, you have forgotten as well as it was in fact 6 in a row. And in the five years before that FSU won 4 out of 5. Making the last 15 matchups between the team a slight 8-7 lead for UF.

    Let’s hope politics never get in the way of this game and the Miami game being played every year. No better times when I was in college than hosting either or driving down to Gainesville or hopping a quick flight to Miami for those games. It’s still the measuring stick for all 3 programs.
