ORLANDO - Florida RB Kelvin Taylor reached a milestone in his final game with the Gators.

With 41 rushing yards in the first half of Friday's Citrus Bowl, Taylor became the ninth different Gator to rush for at least 1,000 yards in a season. The feat has only been accomplished twice in the past decade - by Taylor and by Mike Gillislee in 2012.

Taylor, the son of former UF and NFL great Fred Taylor, entered the game with 985 yards.
