GAINESVILLE, Fla. -

No. 6 Florida will have quarterback Jeff Driskel back against rival and 10th-ranked Florida State.

Driskel sat out Saturday's 23-0 win over Jacksonville State because of a sprained right ankle. Jacoby Brissett completed 14 of 22 passes for 154 yards.

Driskel was on the sideline without a walking boot, a good sign for Florida (10-1).

Coach Will Muschamp says Driskel worked out Sunday and looked good.

Muschamp declined to say whether Driskel will start against the Seminoles (10-1). He says Driskel "will play in the game. To what degree? Again, the week will determine that on how his health continues to improve."

Driskel missed practice Monday but is expected to be ready Tuesday. He has completed 65 percent of his passes for 1,324 yards, with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
