There’s another Jim McElwain Bowl. Kind of, at least.

The Florida Gators released their 2020 football schedule Wednesday, starting with another Jim McElwain Bowl and ending with rival Florida State.

UF opens on Sept. 5 against Eastern Washington. It’s the type of Division I-AA game that made sense when it was scheduled three years ago; McElwain, then UF’s coach, went to Eastern Washington and started his coaching career there.

The Gators’ other non-conference games are South Alabama (Sept. 19), New Mexico State (Nov. 21) and at rival FSU (Nov. 28). The SEC West games are home against LSU on Oct. 10 and at Ole Miss the following week. Coach Dan Mullen has a little bit of history with that school in northern Mississippi.

Here’s the full schedule:

Sept. 5: Eastern Washington

Sept. 12: Kentucky

Sept. 19: South Alabama

Sept. 26: at Tennessee

Oct. 3: South Carolina

Oct. 10: LSU

Oct. 17: at Ole Miss

Oct. 24: Off

Oct. 31: vs. Georgia (in Jacksonville)

Nov. 7: at Vanderbilt

Nov. 14: Missouri

Nov. 21: New Mexico State

Nov. 28: at Florida State
