The University of Florida announced a home-and-home football series with the University of Colorado for the 2028 and 2029 football seasons. The Gators will play host to the Buffaloes in Gainesville on September 9, 2028 and travel to Boulder to return the favor on September 8, 2029.
The trip to Boulder will be Florida’s first true non-conference away game out of the state of Florida (not including neutral site matchups) since they opened the 1991 season at Syracuse.
The 2028 matchup will be the firs time the two schools have ever played on the football field.
Colorado last played in the Sunshine state in 2009 when they traveled to Tallahassee, a 39-21 loss to the Seminoles.
Florida Athletic Director Scott Stricklin hinted at announcing “a couple” of non-conference home-and-home series on Twitter this week. Texas is rumored to be a potential home-and-home opponent for a future Florida schedule.
