You don’t need to be Don King to sell this matchup. The Florida Gators and Texas Longhorns will meet on the football field for the first time since 1940.
Florida and Texas agreed to a home-and-home series with the Gators hosting Texas on September 7, 2030. Florida will travel to Austin, Texas the following season on September 6, 2031.
Florida Athletic Director Scott Stricklin has been making a concerted effort to beef up the Gators’ non-conference schedule. Florida will open the 2019 season in Orlando playing against Miami. The Gators recently announced home-and-home series with both USF and Colorado as well. There has also be a lot of talk about the Gators playing in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic (2023).
Working on it. Goal is to have at least 10 power 5 opponents each year. https://t.co/DRYCkN1YjX

With Florida State on the schedule ad eight SEC teams that makes Stricklin’s above statement not too difficult to deliver on.
