is reporting that the Florida Gators are close to renewing its football series with the Miami Hurricanes, which will be played on a neutral site:
According to a report by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley was “receptive” when Miami athletic director Blake James recently spoke to him about renewing the series.
There is one requirement, however. Florida will only play Miami at a neutral-site, which Foley also stated last year.
“I would have to think about Orlando,” Blake James told the Miami Herald. “That’s not real neutral but it’s an easy distance to our campus.”
The Hurricanes beat the Gators 21-16 last season at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. The two teams have played each other 55 times and Miami leads the all time series, 29–26.
