Jacoby Brissett, Jeff Driskel Will Both Play QB In Gators Season Opener

Both Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will see time at quarterback in the Gators' season opener against Bowling Green on Sept. 1, GatorZone.com reported on Friday.

Florida head coach Will Muschamp made the announcement and had this to say:

"I met with both quarterbacks this morning. Both guys will play in the first game. They both deserved the right to play. They have earned that. They both have had really good camps."

The QB competition has been interesting for all of the preseason, with both of them having completion percentages around 62-63 percent. Neither player has started more than two games at the college level.
