GAINESVILLE (CBSMiami/AP) — Alternate uniforms are becoming as big a part of college football as bands and mascots.

The Florida Gators will actually look the part when they host Texas A&M on Saturday.

The Gators and Nike unveiled an alternate uniform Monday night that literally looks like alligator skin.

The camouflage-styled jerseys will be paired with “swamp-green” helmets, pants, socks, shoes and gloves.

There will be very little orange and blue, marking the first time in school history that Florida strayed from its traditional colors.

Helmets will have a Gators head logo on one side only.

The school says the new uniform took 18 months to design and produce and will be worn just once.
