Jeff Driskel is fast. In the words of Gus Johnson, "He's got get away from the cops speed."
Driskel rushed 11 times for 177 yards and three touchdowns against the Commodores. Driskel's 177 yards broke the school record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game.
The former record holder? Tim Tebow
That's some pretty good company for the sophomore signal-caller.
Driskel scored on runs of 37, 13 and 70 yards. The last touchdown run for 70 yards iced the game. What was most impressive about the play was how Driskel was able to outrun two defenders and break away from them.
I understand that Vanderbilt doesn't have the athletes that some other SEC schools have, but a 6'4'', 237-pound quarterback running away from two defensive backs is still impressive.
Driskel will likely be asked to run more zone-read plays to take advantage of his speed and running ability. Especially with Florida's passing game going nowhere fast.
