The Seminoles and the Gators sure know how to pack them in.
The two teams got together for their annual rivalry game Saturday night at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and set a record for the largest crowd ever at UF. The game attracted 90,916 fans, seven more than the 2009 game between the rivals. It’s the largest crowd to ever watch a football game in the state of Florida.

Florida’s had five 90,000-plus crowds in six of seven home games of this season, which marks UF’s most since 2010.
