To see the unusual new look live, tune in Saturday at 7 p.m. when Florida hosts Texas A&M. It is the first time UF strays from the traditional orange and blue uniform.

Helmets will have a Gators head logo on one side only.

-Socks also will be solid swamp green, while each player's cleats are swamp green and covered in the gator pattern, with chrome orange plates.

Nike has been developing the alligator-themed uniform for two years, and unveiled it Monday night. Might be time to re-visit the drawing board for them.

The uniforms are supposed to "take after an alligator's armored body" and channel the animal's "ability to be a master of camouflage".

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

And, of course, what custom uniform is complete without special shoes?

The Gators take on Texas A&M on Saturday.

"The "Swamp" is a place where only Gators get out alive". A swamp is hot and sticky and can be unsafe.

Coach Jim McElwain says Toney (shoulder) won't practice and is "highly questionable" to play against the Aggies (4-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference).
