UF quarterback Driskel doubtful for Saturday
Coach Muschamp says Brissett likely to start
Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel is doubtful for Saturday's game against Jacksonville State.
Coach Will Muschamp says fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett likely will start against the lower-division Gamecocks.
Driskel sprained his right ankle in the third quarter of Saturday's 27-20 win over Louisiana-Lafayette and probably won't practice this week. He is wearing a protective walking boot. The seventh-ranked Gators finish the regular season next week at No. 10 Florida State.
Brissett replaced Driskel, completing 6 of 8 passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked twice and nearly threw an interception on his first four passing plays. But Brissett rebounded, finding Jordan Reed down the middle for a 39-yard gain and then hooking up with Quinton Dunbar for a 3-yard score to tie the game with 1:42 remaining.
