The 2020 football schedule was finally announced by the Southeastern Conference on Monday.
Despite a tumultuous last few weeks in the college football world, with the Big Ten and PAC-12 opting not to play, the SEC has remained steadfast in their approach to a 2020 season.
Earlier this month, the conference announced the move to a league-only format and added two additional games to each team’s schedule. The Gators saw Texas A&M and Arkansas added to their eight previously scheduled opponents.
Florida’s 2020 Football Schedule:
- Sept. 26: at Mississippi
- Oct. 3: vs SOUTH CAROLINA
- Oct. 10: at Texas A&M
- Oct. 17: vs LSU
- Oct. 24: vs MISSOURI
- Oct. 31: BYE WEEK
- Nov. 7: vs Georgia*
- Nov. 14: vs ARKANSAS
- Nov. 21: at Vanderbilt
- Nov. 28: vs KENTUCKY
- Dec. 5: at Tennessee
* Florida-Georgia game to be played in Jacksonville, FL with UGA serving as the home team.
Upon first glance, this schedule appears quite manageable. The Gators will not play consecutive road games at any point of the season and face Georgia on November 7, following a bye week.
Aside from the Georgia game, the most difficult part of the schedule appears to be back-to-back dates with SEC West foes Texas A&M (on the road) and LSU (at home).
How do you feel about the Gators’ schedule? How many wins do you think Florida finishes the 2020 campaign with?
