Florida’s running back Dameon Pierce opened up scoring for the Florida Gators on their second drive of the day against the South Florida Bulls. After a three-and-out to start the game, the Gators marched down the field thanks to 43 yards on three carries by the senior, culminated by an impressive seven-yard off-balance run to get across the goal line for the score.
On just one single drive, Pierce already surpassed his rushing numbers from last week against the Florida Atlantic Owls, in which he ran for 31 yards on six carries. He figures to be a bigger part of the running game than we saw last week when he was overshadowed by both quarterbacks and fellow running back Malik Davis.
Here is a look at his tenacious run to give the Gators an early lead against the Bulls.
