Sunday February 2, 2014Percy Harvin Leads Seattle Seahawks to Super Bowl XLVIII Victory

East Rutherford, N.J.

Former Gators wide receiver Percy Harvin led the Seattle Seahawks to a dominating 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos to take home the Super Bowl XLVIII victory.

 

After playing just one game in the regular season, Harvin recorded 137 total yards, including an 87-yard kickoff return, just the 10th kickoff return for a touchdown in Super Bowl history (Watch Here).

 

Harvin’s six points gives UF a total of 68 points scored all-time in Super Bowls, which ranks third among all schools and tops the SEC.

 

Joining Dallas Baker, Jeff Mitchell, Justin Trattou and Deonte Thompson, Harvin is the fifth player in Gators history to win an SEC Championship, a national title and Super Bowl ring.
