    The Florida Gators will actually look the part when they host Texas A&M on Saturday.

    The Gators and Nike unveiled an alternate uniform Monday night that literally looks like alligator skin. The camouflage-styled jerseys will be paired with "swamp-green" helmets, pants, socks, shoes and gloves.

    There will be very little orange and blue, marking the first time in school history that Florida strayed from its traditional colors.

    Helmets will have a Gators head logo on one side only.

    The school says the new uniform took 18 months to design and produce and will be worn just once.
