The college football season is heating up! Let’s take a look at the upcoming Florida vs Kentucky matchup.
How to Watch
Florida had no trouble against Charlotte last week, improving to 3-1 on the season. The Gators have a solid test this week against a 4-0 Kentucky team that’s knocking on the door of the top-25. Since losing their opener 24-11 against Utah, Florida has outscored their opponents 100-30, including a very solid win over Tennessee. They’ll need their defense to remain at a very high level against Kentucky’s high-flying offense.
Kentucky handled business against Vanderbilt on Saturday, remaining undefeated on the season. After starting the season with four relatively easy matchups, the Wildcats will now take on ranked teams in 5 of their next 6 games. This is the defining stretch of their season that will determine just how high they can climb. With a road trip to #1 Georgia looming next week, Kentucky needs to lock down a win over Florida.
This should be one of the best SEC matchups so far this season. Both of these teams are flying under the radar a bit, hoping to make a sneaky push for one of the SEC East’s top spots. Kentucky’s offense has been impressive, but they also haven’t played anyone that tough yet. Florida’s defense should be a great test to see their ability. I see this game coming down to the wire, with the home team ultimately winning it.
