The Florida Gators football team represents the University of Florida located in Gainesville, Florida. The Gators compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) and the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).
The University of Florida first fielded a varsity football team in the fall of 1906. Since then, the Gators have won eight SEC championships, and three national championships (1996, 2006, and 2008). The Gators have won more games than any other college football team in the NCAA's Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly known as "Division I-A") over the past twenty years.
The University of Florida is one of the twelve members of the Southeastern Conference, and the Florida Gators football team competes in the SEC Eastern Division. The Gators play their home games in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field (also known as "The Swamp") located on the university's Gainesville, Florida campus. The 2009 season was the team's fifth under current head coach Urban Meyer.
