A day after Veterans Day, Florida will be honoring soldiers in its own special way during Saturday’s game against South Carolina.
Several Gators players took to Twitter on Saturday morning to share special helmet decals they’ll be wearing during their home contest against South Carolina. The decals feature initials of fallen soldiers.
