GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It wasn't Jeff Driskel's arm that won him the starting quarterback job over Jacoby Brissett. It was his legs.

UF coach Will Muschamp said Driskel's ability as a runner was a big part of the decision to make him the Gators' starter for the foreseeable future, beginning with Saturday's game at Texas A&M. The 6-foot-4, 232-pound sophomore was a dual-threat player in high school and that adds an element to the offense that Brissett doesn't have.

"The quarterback run game creates issues for a defense," Muschamp said. "I think in the development of our offense, that's certainly something that's going to benefit us."
