Florida to pick starting QB against Tennessee later in week

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida’s starting quarterback against Tennessee will be decided later in the week.

Although redshirt freshman Will Grier played the entire game at Kentucky, a 14-9 victory Saturday, coach Jim McElwain hasn’t committed to giving Grier a third consecutive start when the Gators (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) host the Volunteers (2-1) on Saturday.

Grier completed 13 of 22 passes for 125 yards, with a touchdown and an interception against the Wildcats. He also ran 12 times for a team-high 61 yards and a score. McElwain says Grier used ”his feet as a check down” too often and left plays on the field.

Grier has thrown for 442 yards and four touchdowns. He also has two interceptions and a fumble.

Sophomore Treon Harris has thrown for 269 yards and two scores.
