Gators start Jacoby Brissett vs. Auburn
Coach Will Muschamp made the announcement Friday. Brissett will make his second consecutive start in place of John Brantley, who is sidelined with a badly sprained right ankle.
Brissett mostly struggled against top-ranked LSU last week but showed signs of progress. He completed 8 of 14 passes for 94 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions, while working in a conservative game plan.
The Gators (4-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) plan to be more aggressive with Brissett against Auburn. Fellow freshman Jeff Driskel split repetitions with Brissett in practice this week.
