    Toss up between LSU and USC 2006. LSU was the game where you could see how bright our future was going to be.

    What is everyone’s favorite they attended.

      Football? 2008 LSU game. It was nuts from the get go and had the famous Spikes punt the ball out of the end zone after his pick 6.





      And this tip TD pass from the start

        The 1984 Miami game at the Big Sombrero. We lost late on a Kosar-to-Brown pass but we learned a lot about ourselves that night. The stadium was electric.

          The 97' game vs FSU. 08' against the pups isn't far behind though.

            '97 FSU has to be the popular answer unless you were fortunate enough to attend any of the national championship games. That finish was unreal.

              '09 against FSU was probably the most fun for me. Getting to see Tebow and Spikes one last time in the Swamp. I remember not seeing an empty seat in the house. Not to mention absolutely demolishing FSU and being on top of world as the #1 ranked team. Leaving the stadium I thought for sure we were on our way to back to back championships. My dad and I started looking up tickets for the Rose Bowl. If you were to tell me the next 9 years that were about to follow I would have told you that you were crazy.

                That game was awesome. Can’t believe how we went from that dominance to such ineptitude.

                @ GatorGriff. Be honest. Your favorite moment was Hernandez throwing the ball into the stands.

                (It was for me. I knew then he wasn't coming back.)

                  That was awesome but in the opposite end zone of us. Tebow's last TD was right in front of us and I just remember all flashes going off from the cameras. It was a pretty cool scene to witness.

                    The noise in the stadium that night was unreal took a few days for the ears to stop ringing.

                        97 FSU and 2008 National Title. - The 97 game was more fun and being in the Swamp for that electricity was incredible. Obviously the 08 was special.

                        Honorable Mention: 2006 South Carolina game "The Block"

                          1969 Houston at Florida Field. John Reaves, Carlos Alvarez, Tommy (TD) Durance, Mike Rich. 80 yard pass Reaves to Alvarez. Of course I was a sophomore and expected #1 Houston to wax our "legs" after the debacle that was "The Year of the Gator" in '68.

                            Same here. 97 FSU game. I was 13, got into the game for free with my dad (like we did for most games from 1996 - 2001), we enjoyed every minute of it!

                            Sugar Bowl 1994 & 1996 were great games (blew out WVU and blew out FSU to win the NC).

                            The 93 Tennessee game was great, where it rained like hell.

                            Plenty of fun FL/GA games.

                              1995 UF/UT. An astounding 48 unanswered points in a monsoon. Had the pleasure of sitting in the UT section. After a lot of smack talking when they went up 30-14, they slowly filed out to the point that we were sitting by ourselves up there in the 4th quarter. :lol:

                                I forget the year '93 maybe but destroying Georgia in there own stadium, good times. The 97 FSU game as stated - anytime you get to crush FSU's dreams is a good game.

                                I am going to say the 2018 Georgia game - their fans will be gone by half time.

                                  I was there as well. It was my first UF football game as a freshman. Wild and exciting.

                                  “Trojans are Disposible” game wasn’t too shabby with Wilbur Marshall playing one man wrecking crew... the intro hot air balloon ignited the non-relenting noise and energy!
