Kentucky vs Florida Preview

on

kentucky vs floridaThe Kentucky Wildcats are set to travel to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday to take on the Florida Gators in what is set to be the 1st game for both teams as an in conference  SEC matchup.

The Wildcats are coming into this game having won their previous 2, most recently beating the Ohio Bobcats by the score of 20-3 at home. The Gators are also undefeated at this point, granted they have only played 1 game so far as their scheduled season opener against the Idaho Vandals was cancelled due to weather.

The Wildcats are looking to pull off a major upset on the road this week, traveling to the Swamp to beat a team that has their sights set on a major bounce back season. If the Wildcats are going to pull off the win, they are going to need a major offensive display to overcome the Gators defense in a stadium that is one of the tougher places to play in the country.

The Gators are also coming into this game after a decisive victory over Eastern Michigan, beating the Eagles by the score of 65-0. The Gators displayed an offense that was potent over the Eagles defense, as well as the tough brand of defense that the Gators have earned a reputation for over the years. If the Gators hope to win this game against the Wildcats on Saturday, they are going to need to bring that style of defense and new look offense to the game this week.

While the Wildcats would love to earn a victory on the road over the Gators, it will be tough to do. The Gators defense is more than capable of slowing down the Kentucky attack and winning this one. Gators win decisively, 35-17.
