Florida players were sporting some new gear when they arrived at their hotel before the Outback Bowl.
The Gators normally wear Nike. However, the Gators were wearing these Jumpman jackets Tuesday. Even head coach Jim McElwain was enjoying the new threads.

The Michael Jordan brand, which is part of Nike, has made its first forays into college football uniforms this season. Michigan made the switch from Adidas to Jordan this year.
However, fans hoping the Gators will be wearing the Jordan logo permanently may be disappointed. OnlyGators.com reports the program isn’t moving away from its Nike affiliation.
