Gators to wear Nike combat uniforms for Georgia game



The new Nike Pro Combat uniforms designed for Florida and unveiled by the company on Wednesday will be worn by the Gators during the Oct. 30 game against Georgia.

The uniforms include a gator-skin pattern, which is used throughout the uniform, an alligator-skin motif (in blue) incorporated into the side-swept jersey numbers and Nike Pro Combat base layer. The same graphic is used in a vertical shoulder stripe (in orange) that aligns with a stripe down the sides of both pant legs. The orange helmet also carries the tonal gator-skin design and is emblazoned with “Gators” in the school’s iconic script. “Pride” is printed inside the back neck of the jersey and on the inside cuff of the gloves. 

The alligator-skin pattern is also on the gloves, which form Florida’s Gator logo when the palms face outward. The footwear in team colors includes with the same alligator-skin motif.
