GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -The University of Florida announced on Thursday that Homecoming festivities will be held the weekend of Oct. 8, when the football team hosts Missouri. Kickoff time will be announced at a later date.

The Gators own a 70-26-2 record in Homecoming games all-time, including a 28-5 mark since 1989. One of those five defeats came at the hands of the Tigers in 2018, the last time Missouri visited for Homecoming.

Florida defeated Vanderbilt last year 42-0 on Homecoming for one of its six wins. The 2022 season will be the first for new Gator head coach Billy Napier.
