Nixon Talks Move to Right Tackle

Xavier Nixon is in his second year with the Florida Gators and has already had a meteoric ascension to the starting ranks in his freshman year. As a left tackle in 2009, Nixon started the last several games of the season. Recently, Nixon has moved to the opposite side and is playing right tackle. He talked about that and the upcoming game with Alabama on Tuesday.

Xavier Nixon will have his hands full Saturday with the Alabama Crimson Tide and a defensive front that is beefy and quick. He talked to the media on Tuesday and we have it for you here.
