The Florida football team will be breaking out some special uniforms for the Gators’ upcoming “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” clash with the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, Oct. 27 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.
Ahead of the SEC rivalry game, the Gators took to social media to show off their “Icy White” helmets that will be worn for the game.
The white helmet features the traditional Gators script decal on both sides with the Florida “F” logo on the front bumper. It’s a minor but welcomed alternate look for what is one of the Gators’ biggest outings of the 2018 season.
