If the schools were to play in the future, Stricklin said it likely would need to be a two-for-one series. Florida agreed to play USF in a similar setup, with two games at Florida Field (2022, 2025) and one at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium (2023). White has made it clear he would prefer to schedule home-and-home series with Power 5 opponents because the school generates more revenue from a home game than it would from playing a payday game on the road. "We do home-and-homes with like FSUs and Power 5 leagues," Stricklin said. "We haven't done any home-and-homes with non-Power 5 teams. I don't think we would start that. "But I'd love to schedule [UCF] in a game." Stricklin laughed off accusations that he worked behind the scenes -- he's a member of the College Football Playoff selection committee -- to prevent Florida from playing UCF in a New Year's Six bowl because the Gators had more to lose than gain in a potential in-state matchup. "If you win the game, it counts one win," Stricklin said. "If you lose the game, it counts one loss. When I was at Mississippi State, they said don't play Southern Miss. We played Southern Miss. They had the same argument. "To me, South Florida, you could say the same thing and we're not hiding." Gators AD would welcome 2-for-1 series vs. UCF Discuss.
