Although some signs were knocked over at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the stadium itself did not sustain any significant damage. By Tuesday morning, the turf staff (@GatorTurfStaff) was already busy lining up the goalposts behind the end zones.

Portions of the golf course and lacrosse facilities, however, remain under water.
