Florida to wear alternate uniforms with throwback helmets vs. Vanderbilt
Florida is looking to bounce back from a difficult loss at Kentucky, and the Gators get Vanderbilt this week in a homecoming game.
The Gators will also wear alternate and throwback uniforms featuring retro uniforms with blue jerseys, white pants, and orange helmets with the classic Florida interlocking “UF” logo and gray facemasks for the noon game at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
This weekend’s uniform combination features a mix of items worn between the late 60s and early 70s. The orange helmet was adopted by coach Ray Graves for the 1969 season, and it featured the interlocking “UF” symbol until Charley Pell introduced the script “Gators” logo in 1979, his first season as coach.

The Gators have worn some of this combination before.
The Gators featured the same jersey and pants in 2019 against Auburn and in 2020 against Missouri, both for homecoming week. The 2019 game was the first time the team wore the top in a game since Sept. 30, 2006.
