Four match-ups in a row, FSU has now walked away as the victor in what may be the most important game of the season for die-hard seminole fan. Those that have been raised on Florida State or have lived here their whole lives have witnessed “UF Hate Week” culminate in gameday for years now.

For me as a photographer, I was a little let down by the lack of visual plays yesterday/last night, and only kept 31 images. However, I thought a few of them were worthwhile and helped continue the lasting legacy of this intense in-state rivalry.

Jimbo and the team run onto the field just before the start of the game; two lovely cheerleaders made room for me to kneel between them so I didn’t have to spray and pray to get the shot.
