Florida and Colorado have scheduled a home-and-home series beginning in 2028. The schools announced the agreement Wednesday. Most of the players who will take part in the first game between the schools are still in elementary and middle schools. The first game will take place Sept. 9, 2028 in Gainesville, with the Gators traveling to Boulder, Colorado for another non-conference contest on Sept. 8, 2029. The programs have combined for four national titles and 35 conference crowns. The Gators have been reluctant to schedule many home-and-home series outside their annual rivalry with Florida State. They face Miami in Orlando this fall and scheduled a two-for-one with South Florida that begins in 2021. Florida hasn't played a non-conference, home-and-home series outside of the Sunshine State since facing Memphis State in 1988-89. The Gators haven't played a non-conference road game outside of Florida since traveling to Syracuse in 1991.

N'Keal Harry may have catapulted himself into the middle of the first round with an official 40 time of 4.53 seconds. His camp is extremely happy with his time. Harry, who came to the combine as a borderline first-round pick, needed a good time, and he got it.

In a group of tight ends that is considered to be predominantly stocked with better pass catchers than in-line options overall, UCLA's Caleb Wilson and Iowa's Noah Fant were the fastest Saturday at the NFL's scouting combine. Wilson ran an unofficial 4.50 in the 40-yard dash while Fant clocked an unofficial 4.51 (one scout I contacted had him at a hand-held 4.49). Two of the other most highly-rated tight ends in the draft, Alabama's Irv Smith Jr. and Iowa's T.J. Hockenson, had their best of 40s of the day clocked unofficially at 4.64 and 4.71, respectively.

After Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf put up 27 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press at the NFL combine earlier today, Arizona State's N'Keal Harry matched him. The 27 reps are tied for the most by a receiver at the combine since 2006. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has Metcalf ranked as his No. 2 WR in the 2019 draft, while Harry ranks No. 7.

Texas A&M's Erik McCoy is the fastest offensive lineman at the NFL combine. McCoy, ranked as the No. 4 center in the 2019 draft by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., ran the 40-yard dash in 4.89 seconds here in Indianapolis, edging out Boston College's Chris Lindstrom (4.91) and NC State's Garrett Bradbury (4.92). Washington State tackle Andre Dillard, who Kiper has ranked as a first-round prospect, ran a 4.96.

Though it isn't really part of their job description, offensive linemen who do crack the 5-second mark in the 40-yard dash at the scouting combine usually get an extra notation or two in the scouts' notebooks. And Friday two of the linemen who ran in Indianapolis went sub-5.0 in the 40 -- North Carolina State's Garrett Bradbury (4.93, unofficial) and Washington State's Andre Dillard (4.97, unofficial). Just as a point of comparison, current Eagles tackle Lane Johnson, at 303 pounds at the time, ran a double-take worthy 4.72 40 at the 2013 combine.
