GAINESVILLE, Fla. - The University of Florida football team will take the look of a gator when they take the field Saturday night against Texas A&M.
UF and Nike have worked on the alternate jerseys for more than two years, according to the university’s website.
The Gators jerseys will be swamp green covered in a tonal gator print. Saturday marks the first time Florida has gone away from its traditional orange and blue look.
Kickoff between the Florida Gators and Texas A&M Aggies at the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium aka “the Swamp” is set for 7 p.m. ET Saturday. The game airs on ESPN2.
