Sweet Road Alabama: 2014 SEC slate set

GAINESIVLLE -- Florida drew the short straw when the 2014 Southeastern Conference schedule was released Wednesday.

The Gators must travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to play the Crimson Tide, back-to-back BCS National Champions, on Sept. 20.

Defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin was unaware of Florida’s brutal slate next season, saying, “I’m ready for the Toledo Rockets coming into town here in a couple of days. We take them one at a time.”

Florida hosts LSU, its permanent cross-division rival, on Oct. 11, while travelling to Tennessee (Oct. 4) and Vanderbilt (Nov. 8). The Gators have two bye-weeks next season, one before the UT contest and another before their annual game in Jacksonville with Georgia (Nov. 1).

UF opens league play hosting Kentucky on Sept. 13.

The Gators’ non-conference opponents are Idaho, Eastern Michigan, Eastern Kentucky and Florida State.

The full schedule:

Aug. 30: Idaho

Sept. 6: Eastern Michigan

Sep. 13: Kentucky

Sept. 20: at Alabama

Sept. 27: BYE

Oct. 4: at Tennessee

Oct. 11: LSU

Oct. 18: Missouri

Oct. 25: BYE

Nov. 1: Georgia (in Jacksonville)

Nov. 8: at Vanderbilt

Nov. 22: Eastern Kentucky

Nov. 29: at Florida State

Playing at Alabama is rough, but I think Florida’s slate this season might be more difficult overall with road games at Miami, LSU, South Carolina and Missouri.

Damn, there goes another year without an undefeated season. Its a cake walk schedule and they had to throw Bama in there.

Look at the tough schedule we play......Idaho, Eastern Michigan, Eastern Kentucky. Foley, can we please stop scheduling these tough teams!!!!!

Hey Jessie, throw miami's schedule up next to that, so we can all laugh at how absurd it is that they always talk about how weak the Gators schedule is. There's nothing more hypocritical than a cane fan talking about a weak schedule. What do they play like 2 ranked teams at most a year? Hilarious!!

What!!!!! We only have only six home games? Foley, shouldn't we be scheduling 9 home game and the rest of them at a neutral site. Fire Foley now!!!!!!!!

Doesn't the strength of schedule quotient address all this canesian scheduling non-sense? What was the canes SOS last year? 60-something? What is it this year?

We try to schedule teams (Gaytors), but their to chicken shyt to play us!!!!

And please do post our schedules over the years......you will see out of conference teams such as Oklahoma, Ohio State, Nebraska, Kansas State, Notre Dame and the list goes on and on.

Please post the Gaytors out of conference schedule!

We try to schedule games with you turds, but they're too chicken shyt to play us.


Please do post are schedule over the past 10 years and you'll see teams like Oklahoma, Tennessee, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Etc.


Please also post the Gators out of conference schedule! What a joke!!!!!

Silly cane troll keeps harping on out of conference schedule while ignoring the conference schedule at the same time.
So we play Bama next year plus LSU, UGA and FSU. Don't see USC there, is that a typo, they are SEC East, thought we had to play all East teams.
So basically we play Bama instead of USC. A bit more difficult for sure but you got to play the best to be the best.
Jesse I don't think road games at UM and Mizzou are in any way comparable to playing at Bama, the former teams are weak and Bama is a champion. Come on.

You dont see usc tgere because that is ooc....big dummy

Hey JLO, read the article again:
Playing at Alabama is rough, but I think Florida’s slate this season might be more difficult overall with road games at Miami, LSU, South Carolina and Missouri.

However the schedule is wrong as Sept. 7 is against your big brother and a team that owns U!

@ crazy cane guy: With all those OOC heavyweights the conference you play in must really suck! How can you have a schedule that ranks in the 50's/60's when it comes to SOS?

Dumb cane fan doesn't realize that Miami signed a home and home series with Toledo in 2015 & 2016. Have fun playing in front of 26k at The Glass Bowl.

Anyone anytime anyplace like Toledo - what major program plays at a MAC Home game in a stadium that holds 26k? Duh u that's who; sounds like an affordable road trip for all the ex-cons in the #canessham I mean #canesfam

Good thing for the canes is that they are used to playing in front of 26k so the crowd noise in Toledo won't be a factor! UF has The Swanp - The U has The Library!

Can't wait to see Coley's Dewey Decimal offense this season

Not only that but Toledo has a winning record and if the canes played them this year they would be the 3rd best team on their schedule.

USC = University of South Carolina, who's the big dummy?

Posted by: Gatordouchesaywhat

No, you read it again canedouche, that was an opinion followed by a question from Jesse. My answer is still the same, playing at Bama is much more ifficult than playing two bad/mediocre teams like Mizzou and UM. Duh.

You jlo....thats who. USC belongs to southern california as awarded by a judge.

All i know is we need to get rid of pease! Now, before its too late. This is gonna be a long season with some highflying offenses and no matter what anyone says, our D will not be better or as good as last years. We need a real O coordinator. You will see by mid season. Im worried about toledo and we have really no clue about our D . Miami i believe will outscore us . Tenn. who knows if we are 0-2 going in. At least we can keep up with LSU's O. Its gonna be a long season.
