THERE IS NO FLORIDA-GEORGIA GAME

There's a confusing rumor going around the Internet today, suggesting that Florida plays Georgia this afternoon. Frankly, I'm not sure how such an obvious lie could take hold, considering it's so easy to debunk. Just look at Florida's schedule, for instance.

Or Snopes.

Or the section of Florida's Wikipedia page devoted to rivalries.

Or, hell, this live streaming camera of Jacksonville's EverBank Field, where this supposed game is taking place.

Shame on the pranksters who decided it was ok to spread this falsehood, and, if you fell for it, do your homework next time.
