2015 Florida Georgia Football Weekend

It's that time of year again, when two SEC giants prepare to face off for one of the most prominent rivalry games in college football.

The 2015 Florida Georgia Football Weekend promises to continue that tradition by attracting huge crowds to J-ville once again for a soiree of tailgating and football-themed fun revolving around Saturday's gridiron showdown.
