Florida, Miami to play football again in 2019 – ESPN

Florida and Miami will renew their gridiron rivalry in 2019, as the Gators and Hurricanes will face off in Orlando, Florida, as part of the Camping World Kickoff games.

“Florida Citrus Sports is proud to announce yet another big-time college football game for Orlando,” FCSports CEO Steve Hogan said in a release. “We’re excited to pair two in-state teams for a match-up with tremendous appeal locally and nationally at the top of the 2019 season.”

Miami leads the all-time series with Florida 29-26, but the two haven’t played each other since 2013, when the Canes won 21-16 at home. The programs had met annually until 1987.

The 2019 game at Camping World Stadium — formerly known as the Citrus Bowl — will be the seventh neutral-site meeting between the teams and the second in Orlando. Florida beat Miami 19-10 in that 1976 game.

This contest is the third in the Camping World Kickoff series that also includes 2016 and 2018 season openers in Orlando. Both match the ACC against the SEC, as Florida State faces Ole Miss this upcoming season and Louisville faces Alabama in 2018.
