FSU-UF Pep Rally 2015 brings school together to show school pride

Students sat anxiously in their eighth period classes as the clock slowly inched closer to 2:45 p.m. which would signal the start of the annual pep rally in anticipation of the Florida State vs. Florida football rivalry game.

“I always enjoy bringing the entire school together for this pep rally. I love to see the pride students have in the schools,” Shannon Owens, communications teacher said.

As more and more students walked into the courtyard, students supporting both sides began to cheer for their school.

“My favorite part of the pep rally is when the faculty starts the cheers and chants on the megaphone,” Owens said.

On the Saturday following the pep rally, Florida and Florida State had their 60th all-time meeting. After a game in where Florida’s offense struggled, the Seminoles prevailed 27-2.
