This Saturday new FSU Hall of Famers Aaron Carter and Amp Lee will talk about their team's best Sod Victories. Linebacker Aaron Carter, still FSU's all-time leading tackler (after 37 years), will remember the 37-9 1977 victory in Gainesville which was legendary Coach Bobby Bowden's first win over UF.
The Sod Cemetery, founded by the late Dean Coyle Moore, is in its 53rd season. It has been named one of the 100 Greatest Traditions in college football. The first Sod Game was an unexpected 18-0 victory over Georgia at Samford Stadium in 1962. All UF games in Gainesville and all ACC championship and Bowl games are also Sod Games. Over the summer FSU completed a new Wall of Champions honoring the Seminoles’ three national championship teams as well as 17 other outstanding teams.
"We think that our fans and former players will enjoy being able to see the names of every player on these outstanding teams," commented Athletics Director Stan Wilcox. “The Wall of Champions now has its own special sidewalk plaza next to the Sod Cemetery and showcases our tradition while honoring every member of these great teams. It adds to our game day experience for fans."
