Season overview Edit

The 1926 college football season was Tom Sebring's second and least successful campaign as the head coach of the Florida Gators football team. The highlights of the season were the Gators' two victories home field over the Florida Southern Moccasins and Clemson Tigers, which were interspersed among four close losses to the Chicago Maroons (6–12), the Ole Miss Rebels (7–12), the Mercer Bears (3–7) and the Kentucky Wildcats (13–18), crushing defeats by the Georgia Bulldogs (9–32) and coach Wallace Wade's undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide (0–49), and two low-scoring ties with the Hampden-Sydney Tigers (0–0) and the Washington & Lee Generals. Sebring's 1926 Florida Gators finished 2–6–2 overall,[1] and 1–4–1 in the Southern Conference, placing nineteenth of twenty-two teams in the conference standings.[2]
