The Gators matchup with the Hurricanes is set to start at 8 p.m. on Saturday night and will air live on ESPN. GameDay will broadcast from its normal location when stopping in Gainesville - the north lawn in front of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
GameDay will make a record 28th appearance covering a game featuring the Gators. Florida is 16-10 in those games. The last came during Florida's spring game in April. It's been a while since the crew visited Gainesville for a regular season game, though. They made no trips last season, so their last trip on campus was back in 2006 for Florida's matchup with LSU. They did show up in Lexington for the Gators' game with Kentucky last season when the Wildcats were surprisingly ranked in the top ten at the time.
It will be the 17th appearance for the Hurricanes, which ties Tennessee for seventh most.
After Florida's 27 appearances, Ohio State comes in at No. 2 with 22 games. Florida is tied with the Buckeyes with 10 GameDay trips to their campus, but Saturday will break the tie for now.
