Florida AD: Future Gators-Hurricanes game would have to be neutral-site

If Florida and Miami are to meet again in the regular season, Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley said the matchup will likely be a neutral-site game, reports Mark Long of the Associated Press.

The two programs meet for the first time since 2008 on Saturday in Sun Life Stadium, but it's likely to be the last meeting between the in-state rivals for the foreseeable future. Florida already boasts an annual non-conference date with Florida State, and the Gators often stay in Gainesville for the rest of their non-conference slate. Plus, the SEC continues to consider a nine-game conference schedule, an option that would leave fewer openings for an opponent from another league.

The Gators and Hurricanes met annually from 1938-1987 but have played only five time since, with two coming in bowls.

In May, Miami athletic director Blake James told reporters at the ACC's spring meetings in Amelia Island, Fla. that the Hurricanes had not discussed future schedules with Florida.

"This is a game that’s been on the schedule and we’re thrilled to be hosting them in South Florida," James said. "With that said, I haven’t spoken with Jeremy or the University of Florida about future games and I don’t know how it would fit into their schedule or fit into ours right now. There hasn’t been any conversation and there isn’t anything on the schedule for the future."
