Kentucky will travel to Gainesville to take on a red-hot Florida football team. Here’s why the Gators will remain in the playoff hunt.
Florida is red-hot right now. The Gators enter Week 13 with a 6-1 record and they’re ranked No. 6 in the country with a couple of regular season games left and a likely trip to the SEC title game.
The Gators must not overlook a team like Kentucky in Week 13 as the Wildcats may be struggling this season with a 3-5 record, but there’s a reason they began the year ranked.
Kyle Pitts is back so Kyle Trask has his favorite target and the Florida offense is looking like this year’s version of 2019 LSU.
Here’s why the Gators will take down the Wildcats in Week 13.
3. Kentucky is battered and bruised
Before this season, Mark Stoops was looking like one of those coaches to get some calls after 2020. Major programs would be trying to pry Stoops away from Kentucky, but he looked like a Matt Campbell-type, dedicated to building the program up instead of bolting.
Through eight games, however, the Wildcats are just 3-5 and they have lost three of their last four games. In each those three losses in the past four outings, Kentucky has failed to score more than 10 points.
Kentucky is coming off its ugliest loss of the season, drowning in Tuscaloosa 63-3 as the Crimson Tide did anything they wanted to all game long against the Wildcats.
Right now, Kentucky has quarterback issues, a mediocre defense and no quick fix in sight.
