Wuerffel, the 1996
Heisman recipient, a two-time first-team All-American and Davy O'Brien
Award winner and the man at the helm of an offense that led Florida to a
national championship, still holds a number of school records,
including most passing yards (10,875), and touchdowns
(114).

Not to be outdone, Spurrier himself was a
two-time All-American and he 1966 Heisman winner and finished with 4,848
passing yards in three seasons, which despite playing nearly 50 years
ago still has him among the top 10 in Gators history. Of course,
Spurrier was also the man behind the Fun 'n' Gun offense that Wuerffel
dominated in.
