Florida Gators to host Jim McElwain's alma mater in 2020



The Florida Gators will host coach Jim McElwain's alma mater in 2020 when Eastern Washington travels to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, UF announced Wednesday.

McElwain quarterbacked the program from 1980-83 and graduated from there in 1984. He also worked as an assistant at Eastern Washington from 1985-94. 

"This is pretty cool to be able to add Eastern Washington to the schedule," McElwain said in UF's announcement. "I spent 15 years at Eastern and it is such a huge part of my life. I met my wife, Karen, there and all of my children were born there. I have so many great memories of my time at Eastern and I still have friends there to this day." 

The game is scheduled for Sept. 5, 2020.
