The Kentucky Wildcats just got a big endorsement for beating the Florida Gators this week.

During Mark Stoops’ weekly call-in show, country singer Toby Keith joined the show and gave his pick for Saturday’s SEC East clash:

In case you’re wondering how Keath managed to find his way onto Stoops’ show, it goes back to a friendship Keith has with former Oklahoma Sooners coach Bob Stoops. Keith has actually visited for UK games in the past, though this is the first time in several years he’s made it to a game since 2015, a game that ended not so well.

Keith sure picked a good game to attend this year, as Kentucky vs. Florida is shaping up to be one of the biggest games in deciding the SEC East. Whoever wins Saturday will be atop the division stands by day’s end.

And with Kentucky having home games vs. Eastern Michigan and Missouri following, the Cats could remain there for awhile.

But first thing’s first: Beat the Gators.
