Gator’s National Trophy Shattered

GAINESVILLE | The Gators’ 2006 BCS National Championship trophy may be broken, but fans don’t need to worry. A new one is on its way.


Florida’s operations and facilities director Chip Howard says the trophy had been sitting on a coffee table in one of the stadium’s sky boxes during a move to a new spot. But when the table was bumped Friday, the trophy fell.

The trophy was insured and will be replaced. The new Waterford crystal trophy should reach Gainesville in 90 days.

There is also another backup. Howard says the school had ordered a second trophy when they won the championship. That one was on display Saturday before the spring game.
