Dana Carvey aka "D Diddy" exploded across The Swamp with hip pop humor for all ages during the 86th Gator Growl, at the University of Florida.
The orange and blue sky produced a majestic backdrop at 7 p.m., setting the perfect stage for Carvey to headline and to establish a "world record" for "most impersonations in a minute," thrilling Gators and sending good vibrations across Title Town USA.
Heisman Trophy winner, Danny Wuerffel also entertained the crowd with jokes and musical skits, teaming with Carvey to bring the crowd to its feet.
The JabbaWockeeZ, winners of America's Best Dance Crew shined east, west, north and south across the stage and on the large stadium screens causing Gators to growl for more moves and grooves from this red hot innovative dance group.
"The world's largest student-run pep rally," a multi-million dollar entertainment package produced by Matt Sloan and 500 student volunteers gave Gators true value and rich volume including sounds from the musical group O.A.R.
Into the night after Gator Growl, co-eds disrobed for the 43rd Swamp Thang "Streak The Swamp 09." Around Lake Alice and Fraternity Row, the lower temperature firmed things up, putting the pep in the steps of streakers brave enough to continue the unofficial Gator Growl tradition.
The prestigious "C. More Butts" trophy was awarded on Saturday evening after the Homecoming game to first male and female to cross the Streak The Swamp 09, finish line.
