Local FSU and UF Football Fans Sound Off on Rivalry

By  | 

The Florida Gators headed to Tallahassee Saturday to take on the Florida State Seminoles. Many local fans of both teams hit Beef 'O'Brady's sports pub in Lynn Haven to cheer and jeer.

There was plenty of Gator chomping and Seminole war chanting, and folks said they've been waiting all season long for Saturday’s big game.

Ben Lillard, a Florida State fan, said, "It's a huge day because we hate the Gators, plain and simple. We've got to beat them, every year."

Patty Rowland, a Florida fan, said, "This is a big game because all of our friends are FSU fans and we're gonna beat them bad today and be able to brag big time against them."

Tracie Petrie, another Florida fan, added, "We've had a couple of tough seasons and this year's been great for us, and we are excited our team is doing great this year."
