SEC schools involved in 6 out of 10 of the "best non-conference games of 2013...":
UF involved in 2 of them....
7. Florida at Miami, Sept. 7
It seems like these two should’ve been playing on a regular basis, and it was a big deal for a while when, depending on who you believe, Florida ducked out when Miami was rocking and rolling, but these two haven’t played since a 26-3 Florida win in 2008. Before that, the Hurricanes came up with a 27-10 win in the 2004 Peach Bowl. Prior to 2008, Miami had won the last six games in the series with the last Gator victory coming in the 1985 season opener. This time around, Florida will be coming off an interesting opener against Toledo and has Tennessee to follow, while the Canes have it easier kicking things off against Florida Atlantic and with two weeks off to prepare for Savannah State after.
2. Florida State at Florida, Nov. 30
While the rivalry hasn’t exactly been scintillating lately, the games have become important. The brutally ugly 2011 Florida State win over Florida might have set college football back several years, but last season’s gut-check 37-26 Gator victory in Tallahassee mattered. Beating the eventual ACC champion on the road was a key part of the Florida résumé, giving the SEC yet another huge win for its Best Conference By Far case and killing any of the ACC’s national mojo – what little there was. This year, Florida State should come in on a roll with Wake Forest the only road trip after going to Clemson on October 19th, while the Gators will have a nice and breezy tune-up against Georgia Southern after closing the season out the week before at South Carolina.
