The Florida Gators will travel to Tampa this Saturday to take on the USF Bulls on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Ahead of the matchup, Florida revealed a patriotic alternate helmet to pay tribute to the victims and first responders of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Florida will pair the patriotic helmet with the traditional white jersey and white pants. The Gators and Bulls will kickoff at 1 PM in Tampa as Florida looks to start the season 2-0.
