LSU-Florida gets rescheduled for Nov. 19 in Baton Rouge

LSU and 18th-ranked Florida will play after all this season, albeit in a different state than originally scheduled, which didn't leave the Gators entirely happy with the solution.

The old Southeastern Conference rivals, whose game last weekend was postponed by Hurricane Matthew, are now scheduled to play Nov. 19 at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.

The SEC made the announcement Thursday, ending a week of speculation about what would happen to the game originally scheduled for last Saturday in Gainesville.

The teams had to buy out nonconference opponents scheduled for that Saturday; LSU will pay $1.5 million to South Alabama and Florida $500,000 to Presbyterian.
