If you were hoping to grab a ticket to see the University of Miami and the University of Florida renew their in-state rivalry, you’re outta luck.
The University of Miami athletic department announced on Friday that all the single-game tickets the school was allotted for the September 7th game have been sold. If you’re hoping to go watch the Gators clash with the Hurricanes, your best bet is now StubHub or robbery (my advice: go with StubHub).
The in-state rivals have only played five times since 1987, and two of those match-ups were in bowl games. Back in May, Blake James, the athletic director at the University of Miami, admitted that there has yet to be a movement to reignite the rivalry:
This is a game that’s been on the schedule and we’re thrilled to be hosting them in South Florida. With that said, I haven’t spoken with [Jeremy Foley, UF athletic director] or the University of Florida about future games, and I don’t know how it would fit into their schedule or fit into ours right now. There hasn’t been any conversation, and there isn’t anything on the schedule for the future (CBS Sports).
For all of us that love college football, let’s hope these two storied teams are able to schedule more meetings soon.
