"When you give a good quarterback time, and he's an accurate thrower, they can make you look bad," he said. "When he gets comfortable, he is a dangerous guy, and he's a problem."
Bridgewater, the 2012 Big East Offensive Player of the Year, has already thrown for 3,452 yards and 25 touchdowns and is sixth in the nation with a completion percentage of 69 percent.
To plan for this, Florida has been using backup Tyler Murphy on the scout team to emulate Bridgewater in the Cardinals offense. The team features dual-threat quarterbacks similar to Bridgewater, which should also aid its preparations.
The Gators and Cardinals will face off in the 2013 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 2.
