The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party is ahead on Saturday, and it looks like the No. 9 Florida Gators plan to debut a slightly-tweaked helmet when they square off with No. 7 Georgia. In a couple social media posts released Sunday night, Florida’s equipment staff showed the construction of a white helmet that debuted with the program a few years ago.

The original version of the recent white helmet featured the iconic “Gators” script on one side and the so-called “Fast F” on the other. However, the new white helmet features the “Gators” script on both sides with the rest of the lid remaining the same.

Florida is 3-4 while wearing the white helmet since its reintroduction a few years back, though that record certainly has more to do with the team on the field and coaching staff on the sideline than it does the uniform that the team worse in those games.

This will be the fourth edition of a white helmet the Gators have worn in recent memory following the version that included the “Fast F” on both sides in 2009-10 as part of the Nike Pro Combat uniform and the old flat block F throwback helmet donned by Florida in 2006.

After a couple years of both programs wearing team-color jerseys, the Gators and Bulldogs went back to home-and-away uniforms in last year’s game. It is unknown what the uniform plans are for the 2018 edition of the WLOCP at this time.
