Florida AD open to sched­ul­ing UCF

The Sacramento Bee - - Sports -

Florida ath­let­ics di­rec­tor Scott Strick­lin said he would be open to sched­ul­ing a foot­ball game, or even se­ries, with UCF. The game would pit one of the na­tion’s sto­ried pro­grams and the state’s flag­ship univer­sity against one of fastest ris­ing pro­grams in col­lege foot­ball and a univer­sity with the state’s largest en­roll­ment.

“I’d be OK with sched­ul­ing them – in the right sit­u­a­tion,” Strick­lin said.

Strick­lin said UCF ath­let­ics di­rec­tor Danny White has never reached out about the pos­si­bil­ity of play­ing the Ga­tors. Strick­lin said he would be will­ing to pick phone, too.

If the schools were to set up a Ga­tors-Knights’ se­ries, Strick­lin said it would have to be sim­i­lar to the two-for-one struc­ture of UF’s up­com­ing se­ries with USF, an­nounced last May.
