What is your most memorable game day memory?

One of my favorite memories is my last game day in The Swamp my senior year.  It was a night game (a rarity during my time at UF) and my friends and I spent the entire day together tailgating and then sat all together during the game.  It was a great game and we really took it all in.  I'll remember that day forever.

Thanks Erika for sharing these great memories with us!
