    This will be the Gators' second appearance on the show this season, marking the first time since 2012 with multiple GameDay appearances.

    Since 1993, College GameDay has been television's definitive and comprehensive college football studio show and has traveled most weeks on college Saturdays to the day's big game and has been met by large and enthusiastic crowds. Rece Davis will host, reuniting the cast of characters: Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Maria Taylor.

    Horschels to Tee Up "Two Bits"

    uf Chris Harry / Senior Writer
    Billy Horschel, the five-time winner on the PGA Tour and former UF All-American, will join wife Brittany, also a former Gators golfer, for the pregame chant Saturday against Auburn.
    GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Billy Horschel had gotten the "Two Bits" invite a couple times before, but each time demurred, citing other past Florida Gator greats he thought more worthy.
    Then came the latest pitch to the four-time All-America golfer (2006-09) and two-time Southeastern Conference Player of the Year ('07 and '09).

    Horschel, now 32, told wife Brittany, also a former UF golfer, about the offer. She said go for it.
    "I'd do it if they asked me," Brittany assured.
    Then Horschel had a thought.

    Game Day Initiatives: Auburn
    UAA Communications
    A comprehensive look at initiatives in place for Saturday's game against Auburn and the rest of the 2019 season to ensure Gators fans and visitors enjoy a unique, fun-filled game day experience.

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Saturdays in The Swamp are in full swing, and we're thrilled to welcome our alumni back for homecoming weekend as the Gators renew what was once an annual rivalry with Auburn, in what is expected to be one of the biggest games of the 2019 college football season.

    Saturday's 3:30 p.m. ET game is a sellout, which means fans – who are encouraged to wear blue – should also plan on arriving earlier, parking earlier, and entering the stadium earlier in an effort to avoid as much congestion as possible on campus roads, areas surrounding parking lots, and at stadium entry gates.

    In addition to the traditional pregame festivities – food trucks on University Avenue, live music and the Official Swamp Head Tailgate in Gator Walk Village – ESPN's traveling road show College GameDay, Built by The Home Depot will be in town for first time since 2012. A website dedicated to University of Florida Homecoming events, including the Homecoming Parade and Gator Growl, are at this link.

    Before heading into the stadium to cheer on the Gators, fans and visitors should be aware of cooling and hydration initiatives in place for Saturday's game. Additionally, in an effort to streamline entrance into the stadium, everyone is encouraged to download their digital tickets from the official Florida Gators app into either Appel Wallet or Google Pay prior to arriving.

    Some important initiatives for Saturday's game are:

    • Cooling and Hydration Initiatives
    • Downloading your digital tickets from the official Florida Gators app into either Apple Wallet or Google Pay prior to arrival
    • Arriving, Parking, Entering Early
    • Wear Blue!
    • Two additional Express Pickup Stands (now active at six concession stands)
    • Parking information and Road Closures
    • Secondary Market Ticket Information
    • College GameDay Information

    Here is a detailed look at some of the new information that was released this summer, as well as what is back from last season to ensure Gators fans and visitors enjoy a unique, fun-filled gameday experience.

    Cooling and Hydration Initiatives
    With high temperatures expected during the early part of the season, cooling and hydration initiatives will be in place for the first four home games including misting stations located throughout Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (Gate 9, Gate 16, Upper North Endzone), free cups of ice and cooling busses outside Gates 2 and 13. Fans are also encouraged to stop by the Comfort Temp Chill Zone at Alligator Alley (west concourse between Gates 1 and 4) to cool down. There will also be 3,000 cooling towels distributed at the Gators Fan Fest prior to the game. Florida Lottery will have 15,000 hand fans to pass out at select entry gates this Saturday and next Saturday's Auburn game.

    Empty Water Bottle
    Fans are permitted to bring one (1) commercially branded (i.e. Aquafina) EMPTY plastic water bottle, no larger than 20 oz. There are several water bottle filling stations inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Non-disposable water bottles, sport bottles, Nalgene-type bottles, cans, heavy plastic, glass bottles, and thermoses are NOT permitted in the Stadium. There are 12 water bottle refill stations throughout Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

    Hydration Stations
    There are nine large Hydration Stations located inside and just outside the stadium, which offer FREE filtered water for fans and visitors to drink. Cups are provided, and inside the stadium fans can also fill their empty water bottle (see policy above).

    Hydration Stations are located inside the stadium at Gate 2, 7, 12, and 16, as well as behind Section 1 and 45, along with the upper north end zone behind Section 322. The two locations outside the stadium—which were purchased and sponsored by UF Student Government are outside Gate 8 and 16.

    Complimentary Sunscreen
    There will be free sunscreen for fans attending football games at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium available at the Guest Service Kiosks at Gates 1, 7 and 16.

    Official Florida Gators App **NEW FOR 2019**
    In the continued effort to create a championship experience for Gator Nation, the University Athletic Association has partnered with VenueNext to design and build an app that augments and enhances the fan experience at all its events.

    Student tickets will be exclusively digital this fall with the goal for all tickets being digital in 2020.

    Once in the stadium, fans will be able to make in-app concessions purchases (i.e. purchase an item in the app and pick up their order at an express pick up line) and store credit card information on the app so cash or a physical credit card won't be necessary if a fan desires a cashless experience.

    In addition to tickets and concessions, other in-stadium benefits for fans in the app include purchasing 'Swamp Moments,' which is an assortment of experiential opportunities for all Gators fans to take their game-day experience to the next level.

    Fans will also be able to store and log their experiences with their Swamp Stats. This feature is a digital scrapbook for recording Gators Football games attended in The Swamp and at other venues. The app has schedules, records and game information dating back to 1990, so fans can click on the games they have attended and see their own records and information from their history with the Gators.

    The Florida Gators App will have five pages upon its release that will feature Gators news and team information, gameday information, tickets, personal account details and Swamp Stats.

    Whether or not the users opts in to having push notifications, there will be an inbox inside the app that will allows fans to see ticket details, news about an upcoming game or other beneficial information.

    As previously mentioned, this app will be fully functional inside BHG Stadium this fall. With that said, the UAA plans to expand the capability of this app to Exactech Arena in 2020 and the new Florida Ballpark in 2021.
