Florida reveals uniform combination for Saturday's showdown with Georgia in Jacksonville
Florida is sticking to its traditional look for Saturday’s rivalry showdown in Jacksonville with No. 8 Georgia.
The Gators broke out special white helmets for an all-white look last year. This year, Dan Mullen’s squad is going with the traditional home uniform combo of orange helmets, blue jerseys and white pants. UF is the designated “home team” in this year’s neutral-site border war. The official Twitter account of the Florida football team revealed the look in a video posted on Thursday night:

With Mullen having previously expressed support for black uniforms and the Gators Equipment Staff teasing black uniforms earlier in October, some fans were hoping Florida might follow-up last year’s all-white look with an all-black uniform combo. That obviously won’t be the case on Saturday, but UF still has home games remaining against Vanderbilt (Nov. 9) and Florida State (Nov. 30).
No. 6 Florida is a 6-point underdog heading into the game. The Gators are looking to snap a two-game losing streak against the Dawgs. The game will air on CBS at 3:30 p.m. ET.
