Florida to start QB Harris against Georgia

Gainesville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – The Florida Gators have made a switch at
quarterback.

Florida coach Will Muschamp announced Wednesday that true freshman Treon
Harris will start Nov. 1 against Georgia in Jacksonville.

The move means the Gators (3-3, 2-3 SEC) have benched fourth-year junior Jeff
Driskel, who has thrown nine interceptions and lost two fumbles in the last
four games.

Driskel has completed 53 percent of his passes for 928 yards this season, with
six touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Harris has connected on 12-of-18 passes for 263 yards, three touchdowns and an
interception. He saw his most extended action in Saturday’s 42-13 loss to
Missouri.

Earlier this month, Harris was accused of sexual assault by a woman who later
dropped her complaint.
