September, 2, 2012

Kim Klement/US PresswireWith a solid Week 1 performance, Jeff Driskel appears to have won the Gators' starting QB job.Texas A&M's season-opening opponent, Florida, began its 2012 campaign with a 27-13 home win over Bowling Green on Saturday. Here's a glance at some of what the Gators showed in their win and what could be worth watching when they play the Aggies on Sept. 8:
QB questions: A lot of attention was paid to the quarterback situation coming into the Gators' opener and coach Will Muschamp didn't name a starter before the game, instead saying that the two competitors for the spot -- Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett -- would each play a quarter before reassessing the situation at halftime.
Muschamp carried the guessing game into the first snap, by putting both quarterbacks on the field for the first play of the game against Bowling Green. Driskel ended up playing the first quarter and more, as the Gators were on a drive when the quarter changed. Brissett played just 11 snaps in the second quarter and had five attempts, while Driskel had 16 attempts while playing the remainder of the offensive plays, including the entire second half.
