Challenges for Kentucky
The biggest challenge in playing Florida is stopping the prolific Gator rushing attack. Florida has rushed for almost 1,300 yards combined in the first four games. The Gators are averaging 322 yards rushing per game. They ran for 400 yards in their opener against Florida Atlantic. Against Alabama, the Gators piled up only a measly 244 yards and 4 touchdowns. They had 283 yards in their most recent game with Tennessee. To have a shot at beating Florida you have to be able to stop or at least slow that rushing attack. The thing is, Kentucky might be able to stop that Gator rushing game. UK is 20th nationally and 3rd in the SEC in rushing defense allowing about 87 yards on average per game. The Wildcats playing at home might be able to pull off a big win.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 5:00 PM CT (6:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
