Tennessee and Florida football sport helmet decals showing support for Hurricane Irma victims
A week after Hurricane Harvey devastated the state of Texas and the Gulf Coast, Florida and surrounding states were hit by Hurricane Irma, displacing many and claiming the lives of more than 68 people.
College football was one of the many entities to show solidarity to victims of the hurricanes, with many programs across the nation showcasing helmet decals in support of victims of Harvey last weekend.
This weekend saw similar support for areas affected by Irma. Tennessee and Florida followed suit, with the Volunteers wearing "Florida Strong" stickers on their helmets for their Saturday afternoon head-to-head matchup.
Florida is sporting special helmet decals as well.

Tennessee was also one of many points of refuge for Florida evacuees looking to avoid Irma's impact.
It's nice to see two SEC rivals come together.
