Kentucky picked the wrong time to play Florida last season. A week after the Gators lost to Ole Miss in Gainesville, Florida rolled to a 63-5 win over the Wildcats.
Although the top-ranked Gators remained undefeated at 3-0 following a 23-13 win over Tennessee last week, Kentucky coach Rich Brooks expects the same reaction from Florida that dealt his team a beating last year.
"It seems like we always get them when they're mad," Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said during his weekly press conference Monday at Wildcat Den. "Last year we got them after they were beaten by Ole Miss. Now, they did not light up the scoreboard like they're accustomed to lighting it up, so I'm sure they're going to want to come in here and show everybody that their offense is still explosive. They are obviously a great football team."
In addition to posing a problem to Kentucky's defense, the Gators' defensive unit has been equally impressive this season. In the first three games, Florida has allowed just one touchdown. Brooks said the team's dangerous threat on both sides of the ball will be difficult to overcome.
