UF tailback Malik Davis was a rare bright spot of offense for the 2017 Gators.
Like most things during former coach Jim McElwain’s final season in Gainesville, things went downhill quickly for Davis following a knee injury against Georgia.
But after being lost in the shadows the past two years, Davis suddenly looks like the explosive, elusive runner that burst on the scene as a freshman.
“Malik Davis to me looked like the Malik Davis I saw when I got here before I became the head coach,” UF coach Dan Mullen said Saturday. “I haven’t see that in a couple years. I’m think, Boy, he’s really back to where he wants to be.”
