Two days after Florida debuted alternate jerseys ahead of Saturday's game against Texas A&M, the Gators' equipment and coaching staff has an added bonus: special edition turf shoes.

The helmet will feature the Gator head logo on one side of he helmet for the first time.

The Gators will wear an alternative "swamp green" uniform created to look like the scaly skin of an alligator.

The swamp-green uniforms were designed by Nike to have the look and feel of an alligator. Might be time to re-visit the drawing board for them. Their strategically placed cushion (for added comfort and impact protection) has a texture that coincidentally mimics the armored skin of an alligator.

The trousers and socks are also swamp green, but don't have the scaly pattern.

The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders
Corker, who is not seeking re-election in 2018, disputed Trump's version of events. "I understand we're on the record". The feud is odd because Corker was briefly considered as a vice president running mate during the 2016 campaign.

Matching sideline apparel from Nike is also available.

The Gators and Aggies will be meeting for just the fourth time in history.

They are an ode to "The Swamp", the nickname given to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium 25 years ago.

The Gators will have a new, yet somewhat familiar look this weekend in the Swamp. The Gators are -3 home chalk with a total of 52.5 vs. Texas A&M. "We feel comfortable there, but we hope our opponents feel tentative".
