Florida will play LSU in Baton Rouge on Nov. 19, and the SEC will be paying to make up the Gators’ lost ticket revenue.
The Gators have lost two home games this season as part of this saga: their original Oct. 8 matchup with LSU, and a Nov. 19 home date against Presbyterian. Florida was expecting approximately $7.8 million in ticket sale revenue from those two games.
The SEC will be paying Florida for that lost revenue, according to multiple reports.

In addition, LSU will play in Gainesville each of the next two seasons as part of the deal to play this year’s matchup at Tiger Stadium.
