Florida's Jeff Driskel Named Starting QB Vs. Texas A&M

The Florida Gators have made a decision at quarterback for their game against Texas A&M. Head Coach Will Muschamp has named Jeff Driskel the team's starting quarterback for Saturday.

Muschamp hopes that by naming Driskel the starter, it will allow him to relax during the game.

Driskel had been battling Jacoby Brissett for the starting job. In Saturday's game against Bowling Green, Driskel was 10-for-16 for 114 yards and a touchdown. Brissett was 3-for-5 for 31 yards.

Driskel played in five games last season as a freshman. He attempted 34 passes that season for the Gators.
