The addition of the two western division foes completes UF’s 2020 opponents

The Southeastern Conference announced today that Florida will add Arkansas and Texas A&M to the 2020 schedule. The complete schedule, which will kick off on September 26, will be announced at a later date.

“The SEC office and Commissioner Sankey have worked tirelessly to help its member schools and our student-athletes move forward given unprecedented circumstances; from putting together detailed medical plans, guaranteeing scholarships for athletes who wish to opt-out, to plotting a course for what seasons and schedules could look like, UF athletic director, Scott Stricklin said.”

The Gators and Razorbacks last met in 2016 in Fayetteville, where Arkansas earned a 31-10 victory. Florida leads the overall series, 9-2, with UF downing Arkansas, 30-10, in the last meeting in 2013 in Gainesville.

“Given all the unknowns we face, today’s announcements regarding the SEC initial COVID-19 management requirements, along with the identification of two additional opponents in football, provide a solid framework with a goal of giving our teams the opportunity to compete in a healthy environment during the 2020-21 school year,” Stricklin added.

Florida has played Texas A&M four times and only twice since the Aggies joined the SEC; the series is tied, 2-2. The two teams last met in 2017 in Gainesville when Texas A&M pulled out a 19-17 victory. The last contest in College Station was the first time the Gators played the Aggies as an SEC opponent, earning a 20-17 win at Kyle Field in 2012.
