With the 2019 regular season rapidly drawing to a close, Florida has dropped some future scheduling news on the masses.
Early Tuesday afternoon, Florida confirmed that it has agreed to a future home-and-home series with Arizona State. The Gators will travel to Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe in 2028, with the Sun Devils making the trek to The Swamp in Gainesville in 2031.
The 2028 game will be played on Sept. 16, while the backend of the series will be played either Sept. 6 or 13 of 2031.
That first matchup in 2028 will mark the first-ever meeting between the football programs.
Arizona State last played at the home of an SEC school in 2009, a 20-17 loss to Georgia in Athens. Florida’s last trip to a Pac-12 school was a 1983 tie with USC. The Gators last played host to a school from that conference the year before, with the Trojans serving as the opponent once again.
