LSU Vs. Florida: Jacoby Brissett Starts For The Gators

After a bit of a controversy about who would start at quarterback for the Florida Gators when they take on LSU, freshman quarterback Jeff Driskel did not even dress for the game. This means that freshman Jacoby Brissett is starting for the Gators and could likely not be able to redshirt this year.

Driskel hurt his ankle in last weeks loss against the Alabama Crimson Tide while coming in for an injury John Brantley. After the game, Driskel was seen in a walking boot on Sunday and according to his high school football coach, he was in a lot of pain. It will be a tough go of it for Brissett against the Tigers defense.
