They do something at the University of Florida in Gainesville that, to my knowledge, nobody else does at any other college in the country. They open the gates of the football stadium, 90,000-seat Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, or Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, popularly known as "The Swamp" to Gator fans, and allow students and non-students alike...

We bought 2 tickets to the game there. The seats were good. Naturally, traffic is a nightmare. Otherwise, all went well.

This is an enormous stadium where one enters from near the top and walks down to many seats. Very colorful decor, even on a windy, wintry Gainesville day, one can appreciate the spirit that is generated. Worth a quick look.

I think I am beginning to understand the American fuss with football. There's an almost reverent energy in this gigantic cathedral to the iconic national sport. I look forward to returning for a game

Great time at at the UF/SC game! Go Gators! They certainly pack them in. The seating was tight! I think they are more concerned with getting the most people in the stadium.

I made my first trip to the Swamp for the UF/USC game. This is a wonderful college football environment. The band is skilled and this is SEC ball. This crowd is LOUD and they know their stuff. I sat in the Champions Club. The seats were comfortable even for a big guy like me. There's stuff to see all around.... More

I have been there for several games. Always fun and especially when filled with 92,000 strong! It's clean, good food, GREAT team and always a joy to be there, especially when the Gators win

The atmosphere is The Swamp is electric. There are several different types of seating to choose from. Seats range from inside seats to bench seating outside. We sat in the Touchdown Terrace and loved it. Bathrooms are clean. There is a good variety of food vendors to choose from. Fantastic experience ! Go Gators!
