Overall Grade: B+
Driskel did what he needed to do to win the game. He managed the offense nicely, didn't turn the ball over and made plays when he needed to. His stats, 13-16 for 162 yards aren't eye popping but a quarterback is ultimately judged by wins and losses. Driskel got the win so he gets the grade.
Driskel showed a lot of poise in the first quarter. After A&M drove the ball down the field on the Gators defense and kicked a field goal Driskel led the team on a drive of his own. The Gators took 13 plays to drive the ball 75 yards for a Mike Gillislee touchdown. On the drive Driskel was 3-of-3 for 37 yards.
Driskel completed a nice pass to Omarius Hines for 39 yards to start the fourth quarter. Driskel showed nice touch on the pass and hit Hines in stride. Driskel would have had a touchdown on the day but Frankie Hammond let a fastball go through his hands in the endzone.
All things considered Driskel earns an B+ due to the fact that he was able to manage the game in a hostile stadium. He showed flashes of being a threat to take off but was too indecisive in the passing game. He also desperately needs to learn to throw the ball away instead of taking a loss on third down. Caleb Sturgis' first field goal should have been from about 44 yards rather than 51.
Driskel did show that the coaching staff made the right decision and he will only improve as he gets more experience and builds up his confidence.
