GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida and Miami will renew their rivalry in Orlando.

The Gators and Hurricanes have agreed to open the 2019 season at Camping World Stadium, the new name of the Citrus Bowl. It will be their first meeting since 2013.

The in-state rivals have a storied history, with the teams first playing in 1938 in Gainesville. Miami leads the series 29-26, including wins in seven of the last eight games.

The teams played annually until 1987, but have met just six times since. They played once previously in Orlando, where the Gators beat the Hurricanes 19-10.

The neutral-site game is part of the Camping World Kickoff series that also includes season openers in 2016 and 2018 in Orlando.
