GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- It's still unknown which quarterback will start the season for No. 23 Florida, but coach Will Muschamp has a plan for how he's going to use his two-man system.

Muschamp says one quarterback -- either Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel -- will play the first quarter Saturday against Bowling Green. The other sophomore will play the second.

From there? "We'll evaluate it at halftime," Muschamp says.

The coach adds that Driskel, who injured his non-throwing shoulder Aug. 12, has been cleared for full contact.

Brissett and Driskel have competed for the starting job since spring practice. Brissett started two games last year. He ended the season with 206 yards passing, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Driskel threw for 148 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions.
