There was no debating No. 1 in Gainesville.

NCAA Football: Florida State at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It’s typically a pretty good thing for defensive backs not to have their names brought up a lot. Often, anonymity in the secondary is a reflection of solid coverage and not conceding any big plays. Florida State cornerback Levonta Taylor was far from unmentioned on Saturday in the Seminoles’ win over Florida— although the next time that UF quarterback Feleipe Franks hears that name, it’ll likely be too soon.

It’s not like Franks made a habit of going after Taylor. The latter was only targeted twice; but he sure did make Franks regret those attempts. Taylor, formerly the top CB recruit in the country, wound up with a pair of interceptions against the Gators, the first picks of his career. And one of those he returned 18 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. That would prove to be the game-winning score for the Seminoles in their 38-22 win.
