UK Hoping To Stop Gators

The University of Kentucky football team returns to action tomorrow night, hosting 15th ranked Florida. UK has lost 24 straight to the Gators. Wildcats coach Joker Phillips doesn’t believe his team needs to play a perfect game to break the streak.

“It’s hard to go out and play perfect, you know. If you asked Florida last week if they played perfect—no, they didn’t play perfect, but they won the game. I think you have take advantage of opportunities that are given to you. You can’t have drops, you can’t have turnovers,” he said.

Kentucky, now 2-1 on the season, is coming off a home loss last week to U of L. The Cards are idle this week. They’ll return to action October 1st against Marshall. The UK-Florida game kicks off at 7pm tomorrow.

The Indiana Hoosiers visit North Texas tomorrow night.
