According to a release, NC State football has added a home-and-home series with Florida to its future calendar.
For the first half of the matchup, Florida will travel to Raleigh in 2026. The second leg of the series, however, won’t come until 2032, when the Wolfpack go to Gainesville.
NC State and Florida last played way back in the 1992 Gator Bowl, which the Wolfpack lost 27-10. Overall, the two programs have played against one another a total of 14 times. NC State has a record of 3-9-1 in those 14 meetings; the Pack’s last win over the Gators came in 1975.

Florida was also the second opponent NC State hosted during the inaugural season at Cater-Finley Stadium in 1966. With Steve Spurrier at quarterback, the Gators won 10-7.
Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan on the decision to add Florida to NC State’s future schedules:
We’re thrilled to be able to schedule a home-and-home series with a nationally-prominent program in the University of Florida. It will be a great experience to bring a non-conference opponent of this caliber to Carter-Finley Stadium, and in the future, will bring a first-class experience to our student-athletes and spectators who will make the return trip to Gainesville.
