The Florida Gators continue to bolster their non-conference schedule with marquee home-and-home clashes with Power 5 opponents.
The latest announced matchup is with Cal. Florida will host the Golden Bears on September 19, 2026 and return the favor with a game in Berkeley, California on September 4, 2027.
Florida has recently announced home-and-home games with Colorado (2028-2029) and Texas (2030-2031).
Florida and Cal have met twice on the gridiron. Florida hosted Cal in 1974, a 21-17 Florida victory and beat the Bears 41-13 in 1980 when the two teams opened the season against each other.
