Billy Napier has set a date for when the Gators will debut their black uniforms and “Black Out The Swamp” for military appreciation.

The University Athletic Association has announced themes and designations for all 6 home games of the 2023 football season, including the Saluting Those Who Serve and UF Family Weekend. That will come on Nov. 4 against Arkansas. Florida will honor members of the armed forces, veterans and local first responders.

For each ticket purchased, the UAA will donate an Arkansas game ticket to a local military hero, up to 2,000 tickets. Additionally, the UF campus will be transformed into Orange & Blue in celebration of UF Family Weekend.

Last May, during his first spring speaking tour, Florida coach Billy Napier revealed that his team would be wearing black uniforms this season in honor of military appreciation for the nearest game around Veterans Day. Veterans Day is on Saturday, Nov. 11, but the Gators play at LSU that weekend.

“We’re going to take these black jerseys every year and we’re going to auction some of them off,” he said, per On3 Sports. “We’re going to take the money and we’re going to give it families of people in the military that were wounded or maybe had some type of setback.”

“So, it’s a win-win for everybody. We get to Black Out The Swamp. We get military appreciation. We get to create some awareness and education so we can be grateful for these freedoms that sometimes I think we take for granted.”
