Miami and Florida agree to future home-and-home football series beginning in 2024

Florida and Miami (FL) have agreed to a home-and-home series beginning in 2024 and ending in 2025, the programs announced on Tuesday.

The two-game nonconference agreement is in addition to an already-scheduled 2019 meeting, which will take place on Aug. 24 at a neutral site in Orlando. As first reported by Stadium's Brett McMurphy, the first game of the series in 2024 will be in Gainesville and the second, in 2025, will take place in Miami.

The agreement marks the first home-and-home series between the two Sunshine State powers in consecutive years since 2002 and 2003. They also played in the Sugar Bowl following the 2000 season and Peach Bowl after the 2004 season.

Miami has home-and-home series' set up with Michigan State (2020-21) and Texas A&M (2022-23), as well as a 2-for-1 setup with USF (2025, 2027-28). In addition to its traditional rivalry game with Florida State, Florida has series' set up with Colorado (2028-29) and Texas (2030-31).

Despite Miami's recent edge over the Gators, No. 8 Florida is currently a 7.5 point favorite in Saturday's game, according to Sportsline. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on Aug. 24.
