There is no production information available.  The sound quality is fair and there is no sound for the middle section of the film.  It is possible that band performances from one or more football games as included in this film.

The film begins with two bands on the field and a choral group.  The national anthem is played and sung and then one of the bands leaves the field.  The letters UF are formed on the field and the UF team enters and runs between the open space on the top of the letter F.  The band then marches off the field.  A hot air balloon is shown in the sky and then there is a brief view of the football fans in the stands.   The LSU band is seen entering the field and performing and it is at this point that the sound disappears.  The UF band then performs and then the football team returns to the field.  There is a view of the crowd and the band members in the stands.   The sound returns when the UF band comes onto the field.  The announcer states that music from the seventies will be performed.  The performance is fairly long and very elaborate.
