While we are just three weeks into the 2021 football season for the Florida Gators, that doesn't mean we can't look a bit ahead to what their schedule looks like for next year.
Yesterday, the schedule for all SEC teams was revealed, including for the Gators. The program will play host to a few interesting teams next year including Utah, LSU and Kentucky.
The team's game against the Wildcats will occur on Sept. 10, starting the slate of SEC games a week sooner than this season.
Here is the full slate of games for next year's season:
2022 Florida Football Schedule

Florida will play host to South Florida next year, facing off against the Bulls for a second-straight season. They'll also play Eastern Washington, a team the program was slated to play in 2020 until the coronavirus pandemic nixed all non-conference games.
The SEC home slate includes Missouri, LSU, and South Carolina. The non-conference home schedule features Utah, South Florida and Eastern Washington.
The majority of Florida's home games will occur during the first half of the season, including three in a row to start off 2022. The team will take a break, stopping by Knoxville (Tenn.) to face off against the Volunteers, before returning to The Swamp for three straight weeks again.
It's a favorable schedule for the Gators as the only currently ranked opponent on the schedule is No. 2 Georgia.
