Both Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett will play in the first half of Florida's opening game against the Bowling Green Falcons. Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp has not announced which quarterback will start over the other.
The plan is to play both quarterbacks in the first half, evaluate the two performances and decide which quarterback will play in the second half. Alligator Army writer Andy Hutchins thinks this could be a good idea.
It gives both guys a chance to execute things without looking over their shoulders, and should not be disrupted by Bowling Green taking a lead and forcing the coaches to insert the quarterback who they feel in their hearts gives them a better chance of winning, because Florida's defense should be stout enough to keep the Falcons off the board even if the Gators' offense struggles
The Gators' game against Bowling Green is scheduled for Sept. 1 at 3:30 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN.
