The hits keep coming for Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel. As if a 42-21 loss to No. 3 Alabama on Saturday wasn't painful enough for Driskel, Gators' legendary running back Emmitt Smith called for him to be benched during the fourth quarter. There's no doubt Driskel had a rough day. He was 9-of-28 passing for 93 yards, two interceptions and one touchdown. He attempted a career-high 13 passes of 15 yards or longer with just one completion. The junior, who has a 14-4 career record as a starter, did lead the Gators in rushing with 11 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Five of the most intimidating words in college football are “Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.” Unless you’re Dak Prescott. You chalk up a loss when your team is playing against LSU under such circumstances. Always, always, always. Only twice in Les Miles’ nine-plus seasons at LSU -- at least before Prescott and Mississippi State dominated most of Saturday’s 34-29 win before the No. 8 Tigers' frantic comeback -- had a visitor come to Death Valley on a Saturday night and walked away a winner: Florida in 2009 and Alabama in 2012.
