Florida Gators 2019 football schedule

The Southeastern Conference released the 2019 football schedule on Tuesday afternoon revealing the entire Florida Gators 2019 football schedule.

Florida will resume a rivalry with Auburn when the Tigers come to Gainesville. It will be the first meeting between the two teams since 2011. Florida and Auburn met annually from 1945-2003 but have played just three times since 2006 with Auburn winning all three of those meetings.

Florida’s other cross-division game will be, as always, LSU. Florid will travel to LSU in 2019 for the first time since 2016. That season Hurricane Matthew postponed Florida and LSU’s game in Gainesville. The game was eventually moved to the second to last weekend of the season with LSU hosting. To make up for that Florida has hosted LSU in 2017 and will host the Tigers again this October.

Florida’s non-conference schedule will get kicked off with a neutral site opener against rival Miami. Florida and Miami used to be an annual rivalry game but that stopped in 1987. Florida and Miami played 49 times with Miami winning 25 of those contests when the schools played annually. Since then the series has been dominated by Miami with the Canes winning five of the last six matchups. Florida and Miami will play in Orlando at the Camping World Kickoff.

University of Tennessee-Martin, Towson and Florida State round out the Gators non-conference schedule.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
