Gators to start freshman Skyler Mornhinweg tonight at South Carolna
As expected, Florida quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg will start tonight when the Gators play South Carolina at Williams-Brice Stadium.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
Gators' QB Tyler Murphy has been hampered with shoulder injuries suffered in the LSU game, and aggravated against Vanderbilt this past week.
Murphy did not practice all week and his ability to play was a game-time decision.
Mornhinweg is the first redshirt freshman to start for the Gators since Rex Grossman who led the Gators to a 41-9 victory over LSU on Oct. 7, 2000.
Mornhinweg is just the second QB to take his first career snap as the Gators’ starting QB. Former Gator Jacoby Brissett started at LSU on Oct. 8, 2011.
