Will USF and Florida ever meet again in football?

Will the University of South Florida ever get a chance to exact revenge against Florida on the football field?

That moment seems further away than ever with a recent report that the final of two games scheduled between the teams has been put off again without a date to play.

The Bulls and Gators met for the first time last season with Florida coming away with a 38-14 victory in Gainesville. The second meeting between the teams had been rescheduled three times with the latest agreement having them meet in 2015.

Now the 2015 meeting has been postponed (or cancelled for those who see this as the end). There is no date to play the game, though the schools still have a contract to meet again in Gainesville.

USF is hesitant about making any long term commitments because of speculation that the Big East Conference will increase its football membership and possibly have a league championship game if it goes to 12 teams.

The Bulls have one non-conference road game next year (at Notre Dame) and four non-conference home games with Ball State, Florida A&M, UTEP and Miami. In 2012 they have non-conference games scheduled with Florida State at home and Miami and Ball State on the road.
