Other than renting a car you would have to see if any bus companies go that route. Other than Greyhound which is horrible to travel on. Your best option would be to rent a car if possible. Its an easy drive across I-10 to I-75 and south to Gainsville. However there may be a charter bus tour going to the game, I would check on the Jax forum for more info.

I looked at Jacksonville Airport's list of ground transportation, and wasn't too impressed. Red Bus goes to Orlando, then Orlando to Gainesville--which is a long ride indeed.
