GAINESVILLE, Fla. – More than 100 members of UF's 1993 SEC Championship Team will be invited back to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 8 when the school celebrates the 25-year anniversary of the Gators' Southeastern Conference title.

That team was nothing short of spectacular throughout the course of the 1993 season. While the Gators played one of the toughest schedules in the nation, the 1993 campaign was also one of their most successful ones ever. The team's 11-2 overall record was capped by a 28-13 victory over Alabama in the SEC Championship Game and their first-ever Sugar Bowl victory over Big East Champion West Virginia, 41-7.
