2023 Gators regular season games

techsm5

Florida and Billy Napier had a tough draw in 2022 against the third-toughest schedule in the nation, according to ESPN’s College Football Power Index. The SEC isn’t getting easier with each passing year, but Florida might not face as tough a schedule in 2023 as it did in the first year of Reconstruction.

The non-conference schedule looks favorable for Florida. Kicking off the season in Utah won’t be easy, especially with the Utes looking for revenge after the Gators won the 2022 season opener, but it’s nothing Florida hasn’t had. not treated before. There are also Charlotte and McNeese State on the program, which serve as USF and Eastern Washington equivalents. Of course, Florida State closes the non-conference slate during Rivalry Week.

As far as conference play goes, Tennessee gets the September rivalry game to kick things off. The Gators will also host Vanderbilt but face Kentucky, Missouri and South Carolina on the road in 2023. Florida is the home team for the game against Georgia this year, which is to lose a weekend of recruiting if Billy Napier decides not (or is unable to) invite recruits to Jacksonville.

The LSU game is in Baton Rouge this year and Arkansas is the visiting SEC West program this year.

Here’s an overview of each of the matches in order, including the kick-off times that we know. Gators Wire will update this list as the team releases more information.
