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. Held in Jacksonville, Florida since 1933 (with two exceptions) the Florida vs Georgia football game has been aptly nicknamed "The World's Largest Cocktail Party" and for good reason. 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.
