Tuesday tube on Wednesday: this seems strangely familiar

Little bit of trivia: How many times has Alabama actually played in Gainesville since 1990?
(Take a minute. Think about it. I've got time.)
(Keep thinking.)
The answer: 3.
Three whole times. 1991, 1999 and 2006.

It's a little weird, right? For as much as Bama fans tend to think of Florida as a "rival," the Crimson Tide and Gators have barely met in the regular season since the conference split into divisions (to be fair, the two teams only played twice in the 1980s).
Of those three meetings, only one of them was remotely memorable. It requires no explanation.
