Alligator joins Gators to show off new uniform

Alligator joins Gators to show off new uniform

The cleats are swamp green and covered in Gator print with chrome orange plates. It's the first time they've ever worn a base color other than blue, orange, or white.

Per a school release, Florida will wear these alternate uniforms inspired by the 25-year anniversary that Ben Hill Griffin Stadium became "The Swamp".

-The jersey will showcase a scaled pattern, with royal blue sleeves. Player numbers are orange with royal blue trim.

Helmets will have a Gators head logo on one side only. The helmet, trousers and socks are rendered in the same color, but without the gator-skin treatment. They once made a frog-skinned set for Texas Christian University.

Two months ago, we published a piece about the best new college football uniforms in America, claiming that clean, classic looks were the season's in-vogue fashion trend. And now the Florida Gators will look the part. The idea behind the uniform is to embody "The Swamp" where the Gators play. "We feel comfortable there, but we hope our opponents feel tentative".
