Florida announces Treon Harris will start in opener

McElwain says that QB Treon Harris will start the game on Saturday. QB Will Grier will also play.

Last year as a freshman, Harris threw for 1,019 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions.

McElwain originally listed Harris and freshman Will Grier as co-starters on the team depth-chart. Although McElwain gives Harris the start against the Aggies, he said Grier will also get playing time on Saturday.

Florida and New Mexico State are set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. E.T. Saturday on the SEC Network.
