You can pencil Jeff Driskel into the lineup for Florida this weekend. The Gators’ starting quarterback will return to action at Florida State on Saturday after an ankle injury cost him last week’s game with Jacksonville State.
“Jeff looked very good at practice yesterday and he’ll be ready to go. Yes, he would (start) at this time. Obviously we’ve still got a couple of more days of practice, but he looked good enough to me that he’ll be fine.
(Backup) Jacoby Brissett looked fine, too. We’ll go from there. Right now, Jeff looks good.”
Florida State ranks #5 nationally in scoring defense, #1 in rushing defense, #5 in passing defense, and #1 overall in total defense. Florida ranks #118 (out of 124 teams) in passing offense and ranks no higher than 40th nationally in scoring offense, rushing offense and total offense.
The Gators not only need Driskel back in action on Saturday… they’ll need him to be at his very best.
