‘No contest'

University of Florida Athletics Director Jeremy Foley and University of Idaho Athletics Director Rob Spear have agreed that Saturday night's game has been declared a no contest and that not rescheduling the game is the only viable option for both programs. The two schools, however, have agreed to schedule a game in Gainesville for the 2017 season on a date to be determined later.

"We looked at a number of options and, in the end, we both thought it was in the best interest of our student-athletes and football programs to play out the remainder of our respective schedules as they stand," Foley said.

Florida will fulfill the terms of the contract between the two schools and pay Idaho its $975,000 guarantee by February 1, 2015, as outlined in the agreement.

"I want to thank UF, especially AD Jeremy Foley, for the professional and first-class way they worked through this issue and the focus on student-athlete welfare," Spear said. "It was not in our best interest to play 10 consecutive weeks without a bye week.  We look forward to our return to Florida in 2017."
