GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Neither Jeff Driskel nor Jacoby Brissett was able to separate himself from the other during spring practice and summer workouts so Florida’s quarterback situation is still unsettled heading into the first day of practice on Aug. 4.

As a primer, GatorNation is taking a look at each player’s resume. What they did in high school doesn’t matter. Neither does what they did in the spring game, either, because it was under controlled conditions and against watered-down defenses. The only evidence is what they did last season in limited playing time.

Neither put up decent numbers, but they were thrown into tough situations because of injuries to starter John Brantley.

Kim Klement/US PresswireJacoby Brissett was first to earn a college start. Only problem was that it was against LSU on the road.
Today we’ll take a detailed look at Brissett’s play in 2011. We looked at Driskel on Wednesday.

Brissett played in eight games -- five as a situational player -- and completed 18-of-39 passes for 206 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions. Brissett spent extensive time at quarterback in three games (LSU, Auburn and Florida State) and only played situationally in five others (Georgia, Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Furman). We broke down the stats from the 23 drives in which he either threw a pass or carried the ball in the LSU, Auburn and FSU games.

In those 23 drives, the Gators managed 17 first downs and scored 24 points.

Here’s a look at his game-by-game stats in those 23 drives:
