Rockets to play at Florida in 2013

The University of Toledo football team will play at the University of Florida in the season opener in 2013, UT Athletic Director Mike O Brien announced today. The game will be played at Florida Field in Gainesville on Aug. 31, 2013.

Florida won the 2006 national championship with a 41-14 victory over then-No. 1 Ohio State. The Gators are a perennial contender for the national title and have appeared in 16 consecutive bowl games.

The Florida game is the latest in a string of high-profile matches for the Rocket football program. Toledo plays at Michigan in 2008, and has a home-and-home series with Ohio State, with the Rockets serving as the home team in 2009 in Cleveland and then playing at Ohio Stadium in 2011.

Other big matchups include a series with Arizona in which the Wildcats come to the Glass Bowl in 2010, a home game with Fresno State in 2008, as well as home-and-home series with Boise State, beginning with the Broncos coming to Toledo in 2009.
