The Okefenokee Oar is the trophy for the winner of the annual Florida-Georgia football game.

The Okefenokee Oar is awarded annually to the winner of the college football game between Florida and Georgia.[1] The oar was crafted from a 1000 year old cypress tree that once grew in the Okefenokee Swamp, whose land borders the two states. The oar was donated anonymously by a group of students to the student bodies of the University of Florida and the University of Georgia. Although the football rivalry has existed for more than 90 years, no trophy previously existed to commemorate the teams' victories. The 2009 contest, won by Florida 41-17 was the first between the two teams for the trophy. [2]

However, Florida has gone 17-3 in the game since 1990 (Georgia winning in 1997, 2004 and 2007) and leads the series for the Okefenokee Oar 1-0.
