Gator Bowl Memories: "Super Sophs" Lead Gators to Victory Over Tennessee in Wild 1969 Gator Bowl

The story of the 1969 season actually starts with the 1968 season, which wasn't a great one for Florida football. The Gators beat Florida State and Miami, but lost to both Auburn and Georgia, the latter a 51-0 embarrassment on the way to finishing 6-3-1 and without a bowl berth. Throughout that '68 season, however, UF coach Ray Graves knew he had some players on the roster...

Can the Florida Gators win another Title?

On Thursday the Gators lost on the road, in double overtime, to Rutgers. So it might be an odd time to consider if they are legitimate national championship contenders, but it's easier to learn about a team when they struggle than when everything is going right.
