Florida will use two quarterbacks in its opener against Bowling Green on Saturday, and coach Will Muschamp revealed on Monday how playing time for Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will be allocated.
Muschamp said one of the two would play the first quarter, and the other will play the second quarter. Muschamp and offensive coordinator Brent Pease will evaluate the situation at halftime and decide what to do in the second half.
Muschamp said he has not decided which quarterback will start the game, but said the game should not be considered an audition for the starting job - although it certainly looks like it is.
Brissett and Driskel have been about even in the battle for the starting quarterback spot since last January, and neither has gained separation during scrimmages.
"I think both guys are good players," Muschamp said, according to the Gainesville Sun. "I have said it before, we're not overly concerned with the quarterback position and the talent we have there."
Brissett, a sophomore, started two games last season as a true freshman. Driskel, also a sophomore, did not start any games last season but played in five of them.
Florida is ranked 23rd in both major preseason polls.
