The game might not happen..

Contracts for future Florida games: Florida Atlantic gets $1 million in 2015

by Jason Lieser Assuming the SEC keeps its current eight-game schedule, Florida has its non-conference line-ups set for the next three seasons. The Gators also have two games finalized for 2015 and ’16.
Florida Atlantic, which played at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium this year, will be back in 2015 and will receive $1 million for the game. The Gators also will pay $1 million New Mexico State for the season opener.

Bowling Green State, where former UF coach Urban Meyer got his start, will receive $1.25 million to come to Florida for next year’s opening game.
Here are the rest of the details for the Gators’ future non-conference games:
Notations:
A – Florida and FSU technically pay each other $500,000 for each game.
B – Florida and Miami technically pay each other $400,000 for each game.
C – Miami received 10,000 tickets for the 2008 game.
D – Idaho and Eastern Kentucky also will receive a dollar value equivalent to 300 tickets at that year’s ticket price.
E – Massachusetts’ guarantee drops to $625,000 if the program is not in the FBS at that time. UMass plans to join the MAC beginning in 2012.

If the SEC decides to go to a nine-game schedule now that Texas A&M and Missouri are in the league, it might jeopardize the Florida-Miami game in 2013. If that contract is broken, the breaching party must pay the other party $600,000.

Side note: Every contract contains this item, which I found interesting:
The contract is voided if any of the following prevents the game: fire, flood, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, war, invasion, hostilities, rebellion, insurrection, confiscation by order of the government or military or public authority.
If any of those things happen, you want to be wherever Dwight Schrute is.

That's why they always take the front end of the home and home. They were never planning on coming here to play us and with a new HC he can say that game was scheduled before I got here and we needed to make a change.

whatever, **** em. Lets take their $600K and then schedule an away game and go get paid to play somewhere else. I would guess we net more for road games then home. with our attendance and then also having to pay the road team, screw it, lets just go on the road and get paid.

This is typical Jeremy Foley. If you remember they didn't want to play an immediate home and away because they said our facilities were out dated (The Orange Bowl). Its only a matter of time before we get matched up in a bowl game with them again. They will have to play us sooner or later.

Good lord that's a sad slate of OOC games.

There's like 3 Sun Belt teams on there.

The Gators not wanting to play a BCS OOC game would be probably the least surprising thing I can imagine them doing. The Gators insist on having seven home games every year and pull that off by scheduling nothing but cupcakes and the state mandated FSU every year as their OOC game. Their OOC scheduling is a joke. Don't remember the exact year but its been an absurdly long time since they traveled out of the state for a non-SEC regular season game.
