BananaStock(GAINESVILLE, Fla.) — With the college football season quickly approaching, the Florida Gators still remain unsure of who will be the man commanding the x’s and o’s in 2012 for head coach Will Muschamp.

Quarterback’s Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett have been competing all camp long for the right to be the starter against Bowling Green on Sept. 1.

“They both deserve the right to play,” Muschamp said on Friday. “They’ve earned that and they both deserve the right to start. They both have had really good camps.  Both guys are very even and our football team’s got great confidence in both of them.”

Driskel is recovering from a bruised left shoulder that he suffered on Aug. 12. Muschamp plans on having both play in the season opener if Driskel is able to go.

“We’ve tried to put them in tough situations (in practice) and they’ve both handled it well,” said Muschamp who won’t decide until next week on who gets the first snap on Sept. 1. “I think as we work into competition on game day, we’ll see if there is some separation. I think that’s the next step.”
