By Kevin Kelley -

The Florida Gators have added the South Alabama Jaguars to their 2020 football schedule, the school announced on Thursday.

Florida will host South Alabama at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville on Sept. 19, 2020. The game will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

With the addition of South Alabama, Florida now has three non-conference games scheduled for the 2020 season. The Gators are also slated to host Eastern Washington on Sept. 5 and travel to arch-rival Florida State on Nov. 28.

In SEC play, Florida is set to host Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, and South Carolina and travel to Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, and Georgia (in Jacksonville).

South Alabama was previously scheduled to play at Oklahoma State on Sept. 19, 2020, but that game has been moved to Sept. 16, 2023.

The addition of Florida completes South Alabama’s 2020 non-conference football schedule. The Jaguars are also scheduled to travel to Southern Miss on Sept. 5 and host Grambling State on Sept. 12 and UAB on Sept. 26.
