The 1991 Season
In 1991 expectations were high coming off a strong inaugural season for Steve Spurrier, and he did not disappoint, wining the Gators first ever outright SEC Championship. The Gators started off with two strong wins including a shutout of Alabama in Gainesville, but things quickly changed when Florida traveled to Syracuse, New York, where they suffered a 38-21 loss. The Gators quickly rebounded with seven consecutive wins, including a second straight win over the hated Georgia Bulldogs, and a huge upset of the Tennessee Volunteers. This set the pace for a showdown in the "Swamp" versus the third ranked Seminoles. This game is described by many as the loudest game ever at Florida Field. The Gators pulled out a narrow win beating FSU 14-9. After a January 1st loss to Notre Dame at the New Orleans Sugar Bowl, Florida finished the season at a respectalbe 10-2.
