Whether you call it Georgia-Florida or Florida-Georgia or the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, there is no question the annual matchup between the University of Florida Gators and University of Georgia Bulldogs is one of the greatest spectacles in college football.

The student newspapers that have covered the rivalry —  the Independent Florida Alligator and The Red & Black — share a history of excellence and competition. Each has a legacy of journalism excellence and an alumni roster of industry stars.

In 2021, we are cooperating to produce a special Rivalry Issue that focuses on the Florida-Georgia football game. The issue will be distributed on both campuses the week of Oct. 25.

We're also competing. From Oct. 15 to kickoff on Oct. 30 we're challenging  Alligator and Red & Black friends and alumni to donate to our news operations. 

You can't control the outcome of the game, but you can support independent, student journalism. Thanks for your support!
