Idaho will not have to make a return trip to Gainesville this year.

We finally have a resolution to the Idaho-Florida game that was canceled last weekend due to intense storms in the area, as the game has been declared a no contest. Which basically means it never happened, nor will it happen any time this season.

Instead, the game has been rescheduled for the 2017 season -- get your tickets now! -- and Florida has agreed to pay Idaho the full $975,000 it would have owed had the game been played. So that's a pretty good road trip for the Vandals. You take the paycheck game and you get the paycheck, but not the loss.

Florida will also give any fan who purchased a ticket to the game a full refund.
