Freshman tailback Kelvin Taylor set to make first career start for Florida Gators

 

Miami Herald Writer

For 11 seasons, ex-UF star running back Fred Taylor called EverBank Field home as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

But Saturday afternoon’s annual Florida-Georgia battle along the St. Johns River will be a different sort of homecoming for Taylor’s son, Kelvin, UF’s freshman tailback.

The former five-star prospect is slated to make his first career collegiate start in the same stadium where his dad became a household name.

“[Kelvin] has continued to improve throughout the season,” coach Will Muschamp said.

• For just the third time in 33 years (1980, 2010), both Florida (4-3, 3-2 SEC) and Georgia (4-3, 3-2) are unranked entering Saturday’s showdown.

• UF’s homecoming game against Vanderbilt (Nov. 9) will kickoff at noon and will be televised on either ESPNU or Fox Sports.
