Whether you call it Georgia-Florida or Florida-Georgia or the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, there is no question the annual matchup between the University of Florida Gators and University of Georgia Bulldogs is one of the greatest spectacles in college football.
Two student newspapers — The Independent Florida Alligator and The Red & Black — have covered the rivalry for more than a century. In 2021, we are collaborating on a special edition distributed on both campuses the week of Oct. 25.
While we collaborate on the special issue, we've issued a challenge to our friends and alumni. From Oct. 15 to kickoff on Oct. 30, The Alligator and The Red & Black will be challenging alumni and supporters to donate. Any donor who pledges $25 or more will receive a copy of the Rivalry Issue.
The Red & Black is an independent, nonprofit news organization. We get no funding from the University of Georgia and we cover our operations through advertising, sponsorships, events and donations. Your support helps us continue to carry out our dual missions: to train students in journalism and to serve our readers as a source of daily, authoritative, independent news.
Every year more than 250 students participate in our organization, getting hands-on experience in community journalism and newsroom leadership.
