Ben Hill is awesome! There are a lot of stupid rules every year they get worse. Rules apply to some, but not everyone which is pretty normal for UF

Great game and venue love the tailgating opportunities. It was kid friendly also so that is a plus. Will go there again recommend this stadium and experience.

If you’ve never watched a gator football game in the swamp, you need to! The energy is incredible. Also, the stadium is open for running stadiums during the day or just for pics. Not allowed on the field. There are also monuments set up outside....More
