As the graphic above indicates, Florida is doing a white out to raise cancer awareness. Specifically it’s for skin cancer, which is apropos for the Sunshine State. I also know that’s a cause that’s important to Urban Meyer.
That graphic indicates that that the Gators will probably be wearing their white jerseys, but Florida officials have said we won’t see a white-on-white look. That combination worked well in Columbia last season as Tim Tebow put up seven touchdowns on the Gamecocks.
By default, home teams wear colored jerseys and the visitors wear white, and both teams must agree to a deviation from that. Hawai’i must give its consent to UF wearing white jerseys in other words, which would not really be in their best interest. One of Tebow’s high school teammates plays for Hawai’i, and he says his fellow Warriors have “no clue” what the heat and humidity in Gainesville will be like.
If Florida wears white, then Hawai’i will be wearing their dark green road uniforms. Dark colors at 12:30 pm in August in Gainesville? No thanks.
