What you need to know about Florida
The Gators took their contest against the Vanderbilt Commodores last Saturday by a conclusive 38-17 score. QB Kyle Trask continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, passing for three TDs and 383 yards on 35 attempts. Trask is putting up video game numbers with a 70.7 percent completion rate, 2,554 yards, 31 touchdowns and just three interceptions in seven games.
The Heisman Trophy candidate will also get a boost on Saturday with tight end Kyle Pitts expected to return to the lineup. Pitts has 24 catches for 414 yards and eight touchdowns despite missing two games from a brutal hit against Georgia that left him concussed and needing surgery on a broken nose.
What you need to know about Kentucky
Meanwhile, a win for the Wildcats just wasn't in the stars last Saturday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They were dealt a punishing 63-3 loss at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide. QB Terry Wilson failed to produce a single touchdown and threw one interception with only 120 yards passing.
Kentucky got steamrolled by an Alabama offense that does that to just about everybody, but the defense has been pretty opportunistic at times. The Wildcats forced six turnovers in an early-season win over Mississippi State and then followed that up the next week by forcing four turnovers in a win over Tennessee. Kelvin Joseph leads the team with four interceptions this year and he'll need to be ballhawking for Kentucky to slow down Florida's talented offense.
