1964 Florida-LSU game
Based on personal recollection (I was rather young back then)...
The normal schedule for UF football during those years was to play Univ of Miami last (unless there was a bowl game). In 1964, the match with LSU had to be rescheduled due to a hurricane. The only place to reschedule it, was right after Thanksgiving. My remembrance was a very cold night in Baton Rouge, in a stadium mostly empty (because many of the season ticket holders could not make the later date). Might be worth a small mention in the article, as the schedule looks odd as-is.
- Cosmic Ray, your personal memory is pretty darn good. That was Hurricane Hilda that plowed through Louisiana in late September 1964. I have been gradually writing and expanding short season summaries for each of the Ray Graves years, but I have not really added much for 1964 yet. I will be sure to include the Hurricane Hilda reference when I do. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
