2008-09 UF Athletics Year in Review
2008-09 In a Nutshell...
- The football team’s national championship led a program-record tying 12 Gator athletic teams among the nation’s top 10 in 2008-09 national competition, propelling the University of Florida to third in the 2008-09 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. The finish matches the second-highest for the Gator program in national all-sports standings, second only to Florida’s tie for second in the 1997-98 standings.
- Florida is the only program in the nation to finish among the nation’s top 10 in each of the last 26 national all-sports standings.
- Florida led the Southeastern Conference with six team championships in 2008-09 - football, soccer, softball, women’s swimming & diving, women’s outdoor track & field and volleyball. Those titles helped UF sweep the New York Times Regional Newspaper Group SEC All-Sports titles. It was the 19th overall title for UF, 16th women’s and 13th men’s.
