Top 11 Ways to Show Your Fandom for the Florida Gators

Are you a Florida Gator fan?

The Florida Gators have been kicking the pigskin around in Gainesville all the way back to 1906. With three Heisman Trophy wins, another three national championships and eight conference titles under their belts, the Gators have a devoted army of fans who descend every fall upon the North Florida town to witness more legendary moments in college football history.

While we wait for the battle cries of “Orange and Blue” to echo off the walls of their beloved “Swamp” again, here are five items for all Gator fans to add to their collection of gear.
