Saturday Headlines: Florida Gameday Edition

It’s gameday vs. the Gators!

Syndication: The Courier-Journal Matt Stone/Courier Journal / USA TODAY NETWORK

Good morning BBN!

It is gameday for the Kentucky Wildcats as they welcome the Florida Gators to Kroger Field for a noon kickoff today.

Coming into the game at 4-0, the Cats will look to try and pick up their second conference win on the season but are also looking for their third straight win over the Gators for the first time since 1951.

The outcome of this game is going to come down to two things;

  1. Can Kentucky’s offense get on track early?
  2. Can the defense slow down an efficient Florida offense?

Neither group has to be completely perfect, but this will be a game that Kentucky needs to get to at least 24 points if they absolutely want to win this game.

Sitting at 3-1 on the year, the Gators come into Lexington with a loss to the Utah Utes but also feature a win over the Tennessee Volunteers. The story of this team is a solid defensive front but also a very efficient offense.

Slow down the Florida run-game, and make Graham Mertz beat you, and the Cats should be walking away 5-0.

Going to be a fun day at Kroger Field.

Go Cats!
