Terrell FloydCornerback | Louisville
Floyd, a sophomore from Port Pierce, Fla., set the tone for the Cardinals on the first play from scrimmage in their surprising 33-23 upset of No. 3 Florida in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. On the Gators' first offensive play, quarterback Jeff Driskel dropped back and threw a pass to receiver Andre Debose, who inadvertently tipped the ball into Floyd's arms. Floyd ran 38 yards for a touchdown, giving Louisville the confidence to pull off the upset. Floyd also had two tackles and one pass breakup for a Louisville defense that limited the Gators to 286 yards of offense.
