It seems that a Florida Gator fan has decorated his backyard with the most glorious thing possible, a football field. It absolutely resembles Florida Field at The Swamp. It appears this was done in preparation for the football season as well as the upcoming Miami Hurricane game that the Florida Gators will play. UF is currently a 3 point and will play in Coral Gables, FL. Antonio Morrison is back from a suspension for barking at a police dog and will have some playing time according to reports. Al Golden and Will Muschamp will face off against each other this weekend. Hold on to you butts! My backyard is ready. My sons are waiting for 90,000 screaming fans to show up and chomp. #ItsGreatUF #GoGators pic.twitter.com/QHR2Cph8GM — Jason Ioppolo (@JEye40) August 31, 2013

The Florida Gators started off on a positive note Saturday with a lot of good things coming from the season opener in The Swamp. Toledo provided a good opening week match up and test for the rest of the season. However, it is time to jump right into the meat of the schedule as the Gators head to Miami on Saturday.
