Will attend UF +5 and UCF +1 - Tourists won't be a problem

The tourists mostly stay at Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, and International Drive. They won't cause any issues with going to football games. Orlando has a nice airport and has tons of hotels to choose from.
UCF has a new stadium on campus which is on the east side of town (Theme parks are on the soutwest corner and the airport in on the south side).
Driving to Gainesville is easy also. The turnpike runs within a couple of miles of Orlando International and runs right past Gainesville.
Another way of looking at it is that it is easier to sell a football trip to the family if it includes a day at either a theme park or at the beach. Cocoa Beach is less than an hour from the airport.
