You have no favorite boards.
This was a great game. Gators kind of choked it away.
'74 team was one of missed opportunities. Ditto for '75 ... The '75 team was the greatest UF team you've never heard much about.

God, I love this stuff. Thanks for the link Keith!
That was really UF's first big bowl game.
How it went down:
Gators started 7-1 (only loss was at Vandy) after beating then-good Cal and Maryland teams, along with LSU and FSU ... after a HUGE win at Florida Field over Auburn, they got the Sugar Bowl invite right there in the lockerroom.
Sugar assumed UF would win SEC title.
Next week, UF lost to UGA 17-16.
Week after, UF got crushed at Kentucky.
They then killed Miami in the regular-season finale. The team was 8-3 for the bowl, but the Sugar execs were bummed after thinking Gators would be like 9-2 or 10-1.
