VIDEO: Andre Debose's Kickoff Return Touchdown Puts Florida Up In 2012 Gator Bowl

One of the few consistent bright spots for Florida in a 6-6 season has been the play of fleet-footed wide receiver Andre Debose. On a 99-yard kickoff return against Ohio State in the 2012 Gator Bowl, Debose flashed all of that speed.

Debose's kick return touchdown is Florida's second of the year, and proves that while a roster that Urban Meyer recruited to Gainesville may have some issues, it does not lack for speed — not only does Debose zoom through a hole opened by excellent blocking, Jeff Demps matches him, stride for stride.

If the Gators only needed to return kicks and not play offense and defense, they might not be 6-6.
