No. 14 Florida Tries to Extend Streak vs. Kentucky
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 14 Florida has been a second-half team this season, outscoring opponents 50-13 after halftime and 27-0 in the fourth quarter. That could change against Kentucky.
The Gators (3-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have had a penchant for fast starts against the Wildcats (1-2), outscoring them 94-3 in the first quarter in the last four meetings. That early game success led to four consecutive blowouts, which helped make the series one of the most one-sided in college football.
Florida has won 25 consecutive games against Kentucky, the longest current win streak in an annual series in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Gators will try to extend their dominance Saturday in The Swamp.
Florida coach Will Muschamp cautions that "none of those wins or losses have anything to do with Saturday. Zero."
