LOOK: Florida will wear green uniforms for the first time ever vs. Texas A&M
The alternate uniforms are Gator inspired from the naming of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium 'The Swamp'
Florida will do something it's never done before in Saturday's game against Texas A&M: It will take the field wearing a base layer uniform that's not blue, orange or white. It will also have the gator head logo on its helmet for the first time.
"The Swamp" was named by former coach Steve Spurrier.
"'The Swamp' is a place where only Gators get out alive," Spurrier said. "We feel comfortable there, but we hope our opponents feel tentative. A swamp is hot and sticky and can be dangerous. We feel this is an appropriate nickname for our stadium."
Per a school release, Florida will wear these alternate uniforms inspired by the 25-year anniversary that Ben Hill Griffin Stadium became "The Swamp."
Per the release, the Gators will sport a "swamp green" helmet with the gator head logo. The swamp green jersey and pants feature tonal gator print and the gator logo, respectively. Additionally, the gloves and cleats to round out the uniform are custom for the game.
