The Florida Gators have announced a home-and-home football series with Utah.

UF will host the Utes in 2022 and travel to Rice-Eccles Stadium in 2023. Utah’s athletic director, Mark Harlan, formerly held that title at USF and helped set the Bulls’ upcoming series with UF.

Friday’s announcement is the latest sign of the Gators’ intention to play 10 Power Five opponents a year (eight in the SEC, Florida State and one other).
