Emmitt Smith has 'seen enough' of Driskel

9/21/2014

The hits keep coming for Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel.

As if a 42-21 loss to No. 3 Alabama on Saturday wasn't painful enough for Driskel, Gators' legendary running back Emmitt Smith called for him to be benched during the fourth quarter.

There's no doubt Driskel had a rough day. He was 9-of-28 passing for 93 yards, two interceptions and one touchdown. He attempted a career-high 13 passes of 15 yards or longer with just one completion.

The junior, who has a 14-4 career record as a starter, did lead the Gators in rushing with 11 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown.

Florida (2-1, 1-1 in the SEC) is off next weekend before visiting Tennessee on Oct. 4.
