The two schools also announced a neutral site game for the upcoming 2010 season, with Georgia traveling to play in Birmingham's Hoover Metropolitan Stadium.
Gladiators go to Florida for preseason
The Gwinnett Gladiators announced Friday they will play a pair of preseason games against the Florida Everblades on Oct. 9-10 in Estero, Fla.

Gwinnett opens the regular season on Oct. 17 at the Arena at Gwinnett Center against the Wheeling Nailers.
