Like most teams in the Southeastern Conference, on top of being highly competitive on the National level the Florida Gators also have a fierce inter-conference rivalry that takes precedence over almost all other games in any given season. For the Florida Gators, the high-stakes game that annually gets fans all fired up is the Florida-Georgia/Georgia-Florida game. The two teams meet every year at the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" though h the schools are reluctant to accept this name because they do not want to promote alcohol consumption. The game is played Jacksonville Municipal Stadium with the home team being rotated every year. Fans of both school are known to get pretty crazy at the game and it is always a fan-favorite! The Florida Gators also play in rivalry games to a lesser extent with Florida State, Tennessee and Miami.
University of Florida students and alumni flock to "the Swamp" no matter who the is on the Florida Gators schedule. Fans can always be counted on to show up in the University of Florida school colors, orange and blue. University of Florida mascot, Albert E. Gator can also be counted on to make an appearance at University of Florida football games.
