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.
