2012 Orange & Blue Debut notebook
On Saturday, the Gators concluded spring practice with the annual Orange & Blue Debut – won by the Blue team by a score of 21-20 – in front of an announced crowd of 38,100 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. A late flourish of offense by both sides salvaged a scrimmage which, at times, could have lulled many fans to sleep. The two squads combined to score 27 points in the final 4:05 of the game, to put a somewhat positive cap on an otherwise vanilla contest.
Both quarterbacks played well, with Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel each directing the offense to three touchdowns a piece. Brissett completed 8 of 12 passes for 181 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Driskel connected on 10 of 11 passes for 133 yards, and also rushed for a score in the fourth quarter.
