Florida Gators football put up an admirable effort in 2020 despite the coronavirus pandemic — which nearly derailed their season — managing to keep the Gator Nation’s collective consciousness captive all the way until the bitter end. While the season ended on a sour note in the form of a three-game losing streak, fans of the Orange and Blue are already looking forward to next year.

While the 2021 schedule is far from set, there are enough games on the ledger to get an idea of who the Gators may face when the set out do defend their Southeastern Conference East Division crown. So far, only four non-conference games and one intraconference game has been scheduled, including a revival of a much-missed rivalry with the Florida State Seminoles as well as the annual matchup with the Georgia Bulldogs in Jacksonville.

Otherwise, the remaining SEC dates and times remain up in the air. Hopefully, COVID will be much better managed by next fall and the college football season can go on unabated. But nothing is for certain in this world we currently live in.

Here is a look at all of Florida’s football opponents in 2021, with both the scheduled and unscheduled matchups listed.
