FSU-Florida extended through 2018

Florida State and Florida have extended their annual series through the 2018 season, the Gators announced Thursday.

The current contract between the rivals expires after the 2014 season, but there was never a doubt the series would be renewed. Their matchup has become a fixture as the regular-season finale for both schools.

Florida State and Florida have played every year since 1958 and have grown their rivalry into one of the fiercest in college football. From 1990-2000 both schools were ranked in the AP Top 10 when they played each other.

Florida leads the overall series 34-22-2 but the Seminoles have won three of the last four matchups.
