Kentucky football has not beaten Florida in 30 years, but most Wildcat fans will tell you that this is the year they can pull off the unthinkable. The guys at CBS Sports, save for Brian Jones, also believe that this is the year that Kentucky finally pulls off a win:
Both schools are 1-0 in SEC play so far this season and the winner of this game could control their fate in the SEC East. Kentucky has gotten wins against South Carolina, Eastern Kentucky and Southern Miss while Florida lost to Michigan in its opener and beat Tennessee on a Hail Mary last week.
Neither have gotten any really good wins, but this should be a good test to see if Kentucky is in fact, for real this season. Florida’s offense has been bad — like really bad — but the defense is still solid. If the Wildcats can find a way to get by the Gators then they could find themselves in the middle of a hunt for a division title.
