This film depicts scenes from the 1966 University of Florida Homecoming including the Florida-Auburn game.  Footage of the game includes Steve Spurrier's memorable game winning field goal.  Also includes aerial views of the campus, the Homecoming Parade, and the Blue Key Banquet featuring Vice President Hubert Humphrey as the keynote speaker.

The film was heavily spliced.  The first half of the Florida-Auburn game actually follows the second half.
