GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 17 Florida hasn't gotten this kind of quarterback play, at least not for three consecutive games, since the Tim Tebow era.

Tyler Murphy, a fourth-year junior who didn't take a snap his first three seasons, has shown poise and pocket presence. He has been accurate and efficient. He has taken care of the ball, turned negative plays into big gains and helped the Gators overcome a season-ending injury to starter Jeff Driskel.

In three games, Murphy has performed better than Driskel and everyone else who threw passes at Florida since Tebow's departure in 2010.

And if anyone wants to call Murphy a ``game manager,'' well, that's just fine. Murphy and the Gators welcome the label. They even consider it a compliment heading into Saturday's game at No. 10 LSU.
