The University of Florida announced, on Friday afternoon, that they have scheduled a home and home with the Texas Longhorns. The first of these two meetings will take place in Gainesville on Sept. 7, 2030, and the Gators will then travel to Texas for an out of conference match up on Sept. 6, 2031.

Florida recently announced that they would be playing a home and home with Colorado as well. Clearly, the prospect of taking on Texas is a much more enticing series for fans and media alike.

Florida first faced Texas on Oct. 25, 1924, when they ended in a 7-7 draw. The Longhorns won the only other two matchups in 1939 (12-0) and 1940 (26-0). The Gators will be hungry and looking for their first and second wins against the storied program from Austin.
