Join Mick Hubert, Voice of
the Gators, as he relives, through radio high-lights, the 1993–94 Gator
football and basketball seasons, a year which saw the University of Florida
climb to the top of collegiate athletic programs!
Capturing a second
consecutive SEC Eastern Division title, the Florida Gators avenged a loss to
Alabama the year before by beating the Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship
game and earning a berth in the Sugar Bowl. Along the way, the Gator scored
more points, totaled more yards and passed for more touchdowns than any team in
conference history. Against undefeated West Virginia, the Gators rolled to a
41–7 Sugar Bowl win, for a school-record eleventh victory and a top five
ranking in the final AP poll.
The Florida basketball
team began the 1993–94 season largely unheralded, but shocking critics and fans
alike, marched to victory after victory leaving in their wake major powers
Kentucky, Texas and Oklahoma State. On their way to a school-record twenty-nine
victories, the Gators become SEC Eastern Divisions Co-Champions, SEC Tournament
Runner-ups and ranked fourteen in the final AP poll. A third seed in the NCAA
Tournament, Florida defeated James Madison and Pennsylvania, stunned UConn and
rallied against Boston College to capture the East Regional Title. They had, in
fact, “Found a Way” to the Final Four. Download and start listening now!
