Kentucky is going to present the Gators’ defense with a real challenge with their revamped offense under new offensive coordinator Liam Coen.
Last week, the Gators defeated the Tennessee Volunteers 38-14. However, Florida didn’t field their best defense.
The defensive unit had some key players that weren’t 100% heading into their matchup with Tennessee, and head coach Dan Mullen admitted Monday that they rested those guys against the Vols.
Not only did they take a shot at Tennessee, which all of BBN loves, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham praised the Cats’ offense.
“It’s a much more difficult challenge than, say, last week.”

Adding insult to injury, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham just praised Kentucky's offense:
"It's a much more difficult challenge than, say, last week."
It looks like Kentucky has the full attention of the Gators’ defense heading into their Week 5 battle, while the Vols have been reduced to an afterthought in the SEC East.
If the Cats can come away with a victory, it will set them up for a very special season and a real shot at landing a New Year’s Six Bowl.
Kentucky and Florida will kick off at 6:00 pm ET Saturday night, and it will air on ESPN.
