So you would like to go to The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party? Well, you’re not going to get tickets on the primary market.
Florida announced Tuesday that the Oct. 29 game at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. against the Bulldogs is already sold out.

That’s not to say the tickets aren’t available. Fans just have to go onto the secondary market to get them now. Stubhub had prices as low as $50 as of Tuesday afternoon. Both teams’ fans should be hungry for football as they each have a bye week headed into the rivalry game.
Georgia Florida has won the last two meetings, but this will be the program’s first under new head coach Kirby Smart while it’s the second for Jim McElwain. The Bulldogs most recently won in 2013 when they took down then No. 2 Gators in 2012. The nickname for the rivalry was coined in the 1950s by a Florida Times-Union sportswriter, but the name hasn’t officially been used since 2006 at the request of the university presidents.
Georgia leads the series 49-42-2 over Florida with a game being played every year since 1943. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. on CBS.
