Tennessee, Florida sport decals supporting Hurricane Irma victims

Florida and Tennessee are wearing special helmet decals showing support for victims of Hurricane Irma.

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.

Minnesota is sporting a decal supporting victims of both Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well:

Tennessee State will wear "Florida Strong" stickers this week.

Still showing their love for Texas, Rice sported these decals in their game against Houston:
