Late Thursday, the LSU-Florida saga reached an end when LSU announced that LSU will host Florida on November 19th. Both schools have cancelled their games against Presbyterian and South Alabama to accommodate the game. In return for the game being moved to Baton Rouge, LSU will play Florida in Gainesville in 2017 and 2018.

As of right now, all the school has confirmed is that the tickets for the October 8th game in Gainesville will be honored, but a source has also said that tickets for the South Alabama game that was supposed to take place on the 19th will also be honored. As of right now, Stubhub has frozen ticket sales for the game, so sit tight and keep your ear to the ground to see how that plays out.

UPDATE via LSU ticket office:

Time and TV for the game are still up in the air, though the release about this matter from Florida actually says that the game will “be played no later than 3:30 p.m. ET.” Whether or not UF ACTUALLY HAS the ability to dictate the game time is something we’ll find out later. The SEC slate for that day, “The SEC-SoCon Challege” weekend as some people like to call it, is pretty bare and CBS will probably jump at the chance.

Despite the game being moved to Baton Rouge, Florida AD Jeremy Foley, who will be officially retired from his duties at UF before this game is played, couldn’t resist firing one more factually incorrect shot:

Hmmmmmm.

Somebody spilled the salt.
