GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg made his first career start for the Gators last week at South Carolina. He will make his first start at home today against Georgia Southern.
A redshirt freshman from Philadelphia, Mornhinweg completed 10 of 13 passes for 107 yards and one interception in Florida's 19-14 loss at South Carolina. He is starting in place of Tyler Murphy, who is out with a shoulder injury.
Meanwhile, Florida will be without starting defensive end Jonathan Bullard and freshman receiver Demarcus Robinson.
Bullard aggravated a previous injury during practice this week and will miss his first game of the season. Bullard has 28 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Robinson, who has five catches for 23 yards on the season, is suspended for the rest of the regular season for a violation of team rules.
