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.
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.
Driskel has completed 55 percent of his passes for 878 yards, with six touchdowns and eight interceptions this season.
