Saturday Declared ‘White Out the Gators’
Canes fans, students encouraged to wear white Saturday
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Saturday’s in-state showdown between the Miami Hurricanes and the Florida Gators has been declared "White Out the Gators". All Canes fans are encouraged to wear white. Saturday’s game at Sun Life Stadium will kick at noon ET on ESPN.
Category 5, the student-run organization, led the charge for 6,000 white shirts to be distributed to UM students for Saturday’s game. The shirts feature an Al Golden tie and a pair of Sebastian the Ibis sunglasses.
"Category 5 is proud to work with the University of Miami Athletics Department to bring specially designed white T-shirts to all students who attend the pep rally in our effort to ‘White Out the Gators’," said Andrew Wyatt, president of Cat-5. "We think it adds a unique twist to the gameday experience for students and leads to a greater sense of community as we all stand in strong spirit."
Students can receive their white out shirts at Friday’s 6 p.m. pep rally at the University of Miami’s new Student Activities Center.
