A couple of tweets of interest:

Florida-Georgia is usually played on or near the last weekend of October. It just so happens that the Navy-Notre Dame game that still needs a home in 2016 is scheduled for the first weekend of November that year. Navy-Notre Dame was the only game specifically mentioned by Gator Bowl officials during their presentation to the Jacksonville city council on EverBank Field’s renovation and new scoreboards last month. The Gator Bowl Committee has targeted Navy for a neutral site game in Jacksonville for years, attempting to arrange games against both Notre Dame and Florida State. Is the plan finally coming together?
