The Florida football program is set to begin a new era. On Wednesday, the Gators unveiled their brand new Jordan Brand uniforms for the 2018 college football season during SEC Media Days. Florida keeps its traditional look — orange helmets, blue and white jerseys and blue and white pants with an orange alternate — with the only change being the Jordan logo on the chest.
Florida becomes the fourth college football program to rock Jordan uniforms on the gridiron, joining North Carolina, Michigan, and Oklahoma.
“We’re so excited to be partners with Jordan,” Florida head coach Dan Mullen said at the Georgia World Congress Center this week, via the Gainesville Sun. “It’s a special day for us to join with the Jordan Brand, because it’s about excellence. And it’s a new day, to me it’s a new day.”
The Gators also unveiled their new Jordan branded gear.
“I was extremely happy, because it’s Jordan. And especially when I found out we were going to be one of the few schools to represent the Jordan Brand,” UF senior defensive lineman Cece Jefferson told the media. “Growing up, I didn’t always have a pair of Jordan’s, you know? And look at me now, I’m sponsored by them, the University of Florida is sponsored by Jordan. So I’m excited, this team is excited, and we’re just ready to put it on in The Swamp and see if we can jump like him.”
Florida kicks off its 2018 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 1 against Charleston Southern.
