Tallahassee, FL - November 24, 2012
There's nothing like being in the stadium for a Florida vs. Florida State football game.
Just ask the fans.
"We came out to watch the game to beat the Seminoles," said one UF fan.
"It's unbelievable, it's amazing to have it at our home field," said one FSU fan.
The #4 ranked Florida Gators went head to head with the #10 ranked Florida State Seminoles. This is the first time in twelve years both teams have played each other while ranked in the top ten.
"It's huge to play the gators, especially since we haven't gotten much respect from the BCS," said Greg Abdalla, an FSU alum.
The game was to full capacity. Tickets have been sold out for more than a month.
Many students, alumni and fans will tell you. No matter how things turn out in a season, winning against Florida or Florida State makes all the difference for them.
