(CNN) - Twenty-five years after Ben Hill Griffin Stadium became "The Swamp," The University of Florida Gators will look the part when they take the field on Saturday.

The team will debut "swamp green" uniforms designed to have the look and feel of alligators.

Nike created the look over an 18-month process.

The team will wear the alternate uniform at home as the Gators host the Texas A&M Aggies.

This will be the first time in school history that the Gators will stray from their signature orange and blue look.

Matching sideline apparel from Nike is also up for sale.
