GAINESVILLE (AP) — Florida coach Will Muschamp says freshman quarterback Treon Harris will play Saturday against Missouri.
Muschamp says Harris will share snaps with fourth-year junior Jeff Driskel, who has eight turnovers in the last three games.READ MORE: Street Flooding, Power Outages Reported Following Heavy Rain Moving Through South Florida
Harris would have played against LSU, but he was suspended last Monday while authorities investigated a sexual battery charge against him. The female student withdrew her complaint Friday, and the university and Muschamp fully reinstated him later that day.
Since he missed a full week of practice and preparation, Harris did not play in the 30-27 loss to LSU. He watched the game from the coaches’ box, sitting near offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.READ MORE: 1 Dead, 2 Wounded In SW Miami-Dade Shooting
Driskel has completed 55 percent of his passes for 878 yards, with six touchdowns and eight interceptions this season.
