Healthy Driskel helps unveil new Florida offense

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jeff Driskel wore tan flip flops and blue basketball shorts following Florida's spring game. His calm demeanor contrasted with the frenzied offense that the Gators unveiled on Saturday in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Driskel finished 18 of 32 for 167 yards with a 31-yard touchdown to Demarcus Robinson for his first game action since suffering a broken leg against Tennessee last season. He took every snap from shotgun completing passes to eight different receivers in the 23-23 tie between the orange and blue teams. Florida hired offensive coordinator Kurt Roper in December to improve an offense that finished its last three seasons nationally ranked in the triple digits.
The Gators had all four of their touchdown drives last less than four minutes.
