2020 Florida Gators Football Schedule Home Games

October 10, 2020 by Corey A Edwards

2020 Florida Gators Football Schedule2020 has been and remains a real challenge for most of us but at least we still have football! For those looking forward to some good, old fashioned, gridiron excitement, the 2020 Florida Gators Football Schedule includes 5 home games. And Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is less than a half-hour’s drive from our Florida lakeside Inn!

There is nothing quite like catching a Gators game at “The Swamp,” as the UF stadium is affectionately known. Even though this year’s events will be under Covid-19 restrictions, with only 20% of the stadium filled, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Visiting teams also consider the field to be one of the toughest around, making for some truly exciting, classic college football action.

Best of all, the field is within easy driving distance of Hampton Lake Bed & Breakfast.  Go wild cheering on the Gators in bustling Gainesville, then retreat back to your quiet and comfy, lakeside guest room at our North Central Florida inn.

Our convenient and central location on a natural cypress lake is just 14 miles from the Gainesville Regional Airport. Talk about the best of Florida!
