Sophomore Jeff Driskel continues to show weekly improvement.

If anyone would have told me the Gators would score the final 24 points on the road against Tennessee, I would have called you crazy. 

However, thanks to Jeff Driskel—the SEC offensive player of the week—the Gators returned to Gainesville a perfect 3-0. 

UF's emerging sophomore quarterback doesn't always make it look pretty, but his ability to scramble for extra yards and complete a high percentage of passes have been key to the Gators' hot start. 

Besides Driskel, the defense continues to show why it's among the best in the SEC. 

Senior Lerentee McCray—who took over for Ronald Powell (ACL)—has proven to be a better all-around playmaker than the former No. 1 overall recruit. 

With Matt Elam anchoring the secondary, Florida stifled Tennessee's vaunted passing attack, holding Tyler Bray to just 257 passing yards. 

As the team heads into the meat of its schedule, let's take a look at the five players who have keyed Florida's fast start.
