In the NFL, you can never have too much speed on your roster. Tuesday, former Florida Gators running back/track star Jeff Demps filed to become an NFL free agent and the speculation over where the speedster will land started immediately.
Jeff Demps ran for a career-high 158 yards and two touchdowns, shouldering the load because of Chris Rainey’s ankle injury, and Florida beat Vanderbilt 26-21 Saturday to end a four-game skid.
Georgia coach Mark Richt took several steps toward midfield with his son draped around his neck. His players and assistant coaches were in the background, celebrating in the same end zone that caused such a stir during the Bulldogs’ last win against Florida.
When the University of Florida Gators enter Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn Saturday, they will be battling a team going through what Florida went through recently.
Jeff Demps ran 10 times for 157 yards and two touchdowns as No. 15 Florida routed Kentucky 48-10 on Saturday night for the Gators’ 25th straight win in the series.
The University of Florida Gators have been a model of consistency this season, with a defense that is second to none in the country.
You have to be a pretty big Owls fan, and be willing to ignore a bunch of stats, to believe FAU will leave the Swamp victorious when they take on the Florida Gators Saturday at 7. But stranger things have happened in football, and hope springs eternal.
