Fans of the Florida-Miami rivalry will be pleased to know there’s a good chance the teams will kickoff the 2019 season against each other.
Miami athletic director Blake James told PalmBeachPost.com‘s Matt Porter the game is still a topic of discussion in Coral Gables.
“Hopefully that’s something you’ll hear about in the near future,” James said.
If the teams do play in three years, the game is widely expected to be the season opener for both squads, with both fan bases receiving an equal allotment of tickets at Orlando’s Citrus Bowl.
The Hurricanes and Gators last played each other in 2013, when Miami came away with a 21-16 home win.
They first squared off in 1938; Miami owns a 29-26 edge in the all-time series.
Besides Florida’s annual matchup with Florida State, the Gators already have a premier non-conference game scheduled against Michigan (at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium) in September 2017.
