Florida AD: 'mutual interest' in playing Miami

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley says there is "mutual interest" in playing in-state rival Miami again.

Speaking at the Southeastern Conference meetings, Foley says he spoke with Hurricanes athletic director Blake James briefly about organizing a neutral-site game between the two schools.

The game probably would be played in Tampa or Orlando, although other cities could be in the mix.

Florida and Miami last played in 2013, with the Hurricanes winning 21-16 in the back end of a home-and-home series that started in 2008.

Foley says the next matchup is "not imminent." He adds "it's certainly not a renewal of the series. If it's a game that would work out and be beneficial to both programs, and the dates would work, then it would make sense."
