Report: Florida-Georgia game expected to remain in Jacksonville

The Gators and Bulldogs look to continue the party in Jacksonville beyond 2016.

The annual neutral site tradition of the Florida-Georgia football game is close to being extending beyond the current series agreement, which runs until the 2016 meeting. The game is held inside EverBank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The two SEC East schools have met in Jacksonville 79 times during the last 82 years. The teams rotated home games in 1994 and 1995 and did not face each other in 1943. 

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, the holdup in the agreement has occurred as the two schools awaited the Jaguars’ intentions to renovate the stadium, as some of the most expensive seating may not be available for well-endowed donors to use for the annual college game during the possible expansion. 

Showing once again that "amateur athletics" is all about the money folks. 

Once all the details are worked out, both Florida AD Jeremy Foley and Georgia AD Greg McGarity expect a deal to be done.
