For the first time since 1989, the Florida Gators will wear all-orange uniforms -- orange jerseys and pants in addition to their traditional orange helmet -- in a game.

Florida, which reintroduced the orange alternate jersey a few years ago, has given uniform-choosing duties to its captains, a group that alternates every game.

This week's group seemingly chose to go with all orange after the Gators donned blue tops and bottoms in their 61-13 season-opening win over New Mexico State.

Florida hosts East Carolina on Saturday in a rematch of the 2015 Birmingham Bowl just over eight months ago. The Gators beat the Pirates 28-20 in that showdown.

Here are some pictures of UF in those all-orange uniforms back in 1989 against Kentucky.
