Fans are encouraged to register for their chance to win an authentic Florida football swamp-green helmet.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The University Athletic Association invites fans to register for a chance to win a swamp-green helmet that the Gators will don on Saturday.
Twenty-five years after Ben Hill Griffin Stadium became “The Swamp,” the University of Florida football team will take the look of a Gator on Saturday.
As the only Division I school in the country named the Gators, UF and Nike officials saw a unique opportunity that has been in the works for over two years. This marks the first time in school history that the Florida football team will stray from its traditional Orange and Blue look that is synonymous with its storied program.
Nike Football designers created and delivered a new alternate look for the team (incorporating the Nike Vapor Untouchable Speed uniform) that takes after an alligator’s armored body and channels its ability to be a master of camouflage.
