Thursday October 28, 2010 GZ Morning Links: Florida-Georgia, hoops, volleyball and wrestling? Yep, wrestling

Updated: 8:51am, October 28

Good morning folks. The Florida-Georgia clash in Jacksonville is quickly approaching.

The schools first met in 1915, but Saturday’s game will be their first meeting in historic EverBank Field.

OK, not really. For those keeping score at home, EverBank Field is now what used to be called Alltell Stadium, and later Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.

The stadium was renamed EverBank Field in July.
