The Florida Gators are expecting to play the Alabama Crimson Tide this football season.

The Gators and Crimson Tide weren’t originally scheduled to play during the 2020 campaign, but the SEC has had to switch schedules around after all non-conference games were canceled and two league games were added during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Joseph Goodman, Florida staff members have been complaining about Alabama being added to their schedule. No official announcement has come from the SEC just yet.

I hope like hell Florida and Alabama play during the 2020 season. I’d absolutely love to see that happen.

This is supposed to be the best team that the Gators have had in a long time with Kyle Trask under center. Florida has playoff aspirations in 2020.

Alabama missed the playoff last season, but you can guarantee that Nick Saban and company are coming back with a vengeance.

The Gators and Crimson Tide are without a doubt going to be two of the best teams in the SEC, and matchups like that are the kind that fans crave.

Florida vs. Alabama would immediately become one of the biggest games in all of college football.

We should all be cheering for this to happen. I said the SEC going to 10 conference games would be awesome, and this is why. Fans get more big time matchups, which raises the stakes.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed because this sounds like a ton of fun!
