The Florida Gators are based in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, known colloquially as â€œThe Swamp,â€ a terrifying place to play for any visiting teams. Although its features may annoy or disturb the visiting team, it certainly doesnâ€™t scare the fans, making it harder to find Gators football parking unless you book a space ahead of time. Head coach Steve Spurrier coined the stadiumâ€™s nickname in the early â€˜90s as a way to illustrate the massive home field advantage the Gators possessed. Some aspects of the advantage are structural, particularly the steep bowl shape and the below-ground playing field, which makes it harder for sound to escape. As Gators fans are notoriously loud, it can be quite distracting. In addition, the climate makes it sweltering, almost swampy. This would all be conjecture were it not for the fact that from 1990 to 2010, the Gatorsâ€™ record for home games was 113-13. Gators football has become more popular over the years, making it more difficult to find Florida Gators football stadium parking spaces. If you plan ahead and book your Ben Hill Griffin Stadium parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz, you can save yourself both time and frustration.
Compared to most other NCAA Division I FBS teams, the University of Florida has been particularly successful. The Gators are riding a streak of 22 bowl games in a row since 1991. They also claim three national championships, eight SEC conference titles and seven division championships. Three Heisman winners have been counted as Gators, including future coach Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel and Tim Tebow.
