Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Billy Donovan back in Gainesville in a 'Gator Boys' reunion

Florida has beaten Kentucky in football 29 straight times coming into Saturday's game. If that weren't bad enough for the Wildcats, the Gators also made sure to flex their hoops muscle at the Wildcats.

The Gator Boys, members of the 2006 and 2007 back-to-back national championship teams, were on hand pregame and showed off both of their trophies prior to Florida and Kentucky kicking off at the Swamp. The team's core members -- including new Boston Celtics forward Al Horford, New York Knicks center Joakim Noah and Houston Rockets guard Corey Brewer-- were all able to make it, along with head coach Billy Donovan, who is now with theOklahoma City Thunder.

To cap it off, the team led the stadium in the classic chant as the honorary Mr. "Two Bits."

For all of UK's success in recent years, none of its basketball teams has been able to go back-to-back like the Gator Boys.
