Running back Anthone Taylor has become the third UB Bull named to a preseason positional watch list for a postseason award. Taylor is one of the players on the Doak Walker Watch List for the award that identifies the top running back in college football. Earlier, Ron Willoughby was named to the Fred Biletnikoff Watch List for wide receivers and Tyler Grassman to the Ray Guy Watch List for punters.
Taylor heads into his senior season after a breakout junior campaign. He ran for 1,403 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, the second highest single-season yardage total in school history, and was named second-team All-Mid-American Conference. Taylor was the first UB running back to have three 200-yard games in a season, including a career-best 237 yards at Massachusetts in the season finale.
