Comments

I don’t know what’s happened to Kentucky this season. I really like Mark Stoops but will he survive this season? Kentucky’s offense has been atrocious except for the Vandy and Ole Miss games. The games they have won were mostly because of the Wildcat defense. Florida has the opposite issue but not as extreme as Kentucky. Their defense has regressed big time from 2019. The Gator offense is a juggernaut. Unless they sleepwalk into the game like they did in Nashville last week I think the Gators win by three or more scores.
