Gainesville, FL-- A healthy Jeff Driskel has the Florida Gators in better position, heading into October, than they were in 2011.
Tenth-ranked Florida is 4-0, and 4th-ranked LSU is 5-0, as they battle in Gainesville Saturday.
Last year, as they entered a tough October schedule, Jeff Driskel had suffered an ankle injury and was unable to play when John Brantley went down. The Gators lost 4 straight.
In 2012, Driskel said they're in a much better position.
"We're a more mature team," the sophomore quarterback said. "What I mean is, we get in here on our own, we watch film... We're not gonna do the bare minimum... We all want to win... We all want to get better... And that's what it takes."
LSU and Florida kick off at 3:30pm Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The game will air on CBS and 10 News, followed by a live postgame show on 10 News.
