Gators likely to start QB Jacoby Brissett vs. Jacksonville St.
Florida starting QB Jeff Driskel left last week’s game with a sprained right ankle and it is doubtful he will play against Jacksonville State on Saturday (1 p.m., pay-per-view). The Gators are planning to use fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett in his place.
“We’ll try to get (Driskel) on the field Wednesday,” coach Will Muschamp said. “If he can’t go by then, certainly we’ll go with Jacoby. We have all the confidence in the world Jacoby will play well.”
Brissett, from Dwyer HS, completed 6 of 8 passes for 64 yards and led Florida to the game-tying touchdown in the final two minutes of last week’s 27-20 win over Louisiana-Lafayette.
He has only appeared in four games this season.
After Jacksonville State, the Gators face a road trip to Florida State.
