Taylor Bennett (born September 12, 1985 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a college football quarterback for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. He began his collegiate career at Georgia Tech. He majored in International Affairs at Georgia Tech, and he will enroll as a graduate student majoring in Information Systems Security at Louisiana Tech in the fall of 2008.
Taylor Bennett attended Lafayette High School in Wildwood, Missouri from 2000-2004.
Bennett was selected as the Yellow Jackets' backup quarterback before the 2004 game against the Maryland Terrapins. Prior to the 2007 season, he started in two games; in 2005 against the Connecticut Huskies when Reggie Ball had viral meningitis, and in the 2007 Gator Bowl against the West Virginia Mountaineers when Reggie Ball was academically ineligible to play. At the Connecticut game, Bennett became only the second quarterback in NCAA history to complete a pass for a touchdown in his first ever collegiate play from scrimmage. The only other quarterback to do this was former Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart. In May 2007, Bennett was given a Spring Team honorable mention by The Sporting News in recognition of his outstanding performance in spring practice.
