It almost seems fitting to ring in the Homecoming week on the 80th anniversary of the Florida Gators vs. the Auburn Tigers. Florida and Auburn have not played one another since 2011, when the Tigers upset the Gators. This has left us with a bitter taste in our mouths, but has made us ready for revenge.
With one year under his belt, Coach Dan Mullen has a team that is ready to be respected and wants to win for the Gator Nation.
Starting off the feud in 1939, Auburn leads the series 43-48-2. Both universities are founding members of the Southeastern Conference and have had a history of dominating college football.
All Gators everywhere are encouraged to come and cheer on the team during the 2019 Homecoming Game, which is on Oct. 5 in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
