If history is any indication, the Florida Gators should easily cruise past the Kentucky Wildcats Saturday. Florida has won 29 consecutive games against Kentucky, which is the longest active winning streak between two opponents in the nation.
It wasn’t exactly the season opener that Florida hoped for as they never seemed to really get their offense going against UMass. The Gators offensive line looked like it could be an issue moving forward, which is a concern because that was a big reason for their collapse to end the 2015 season.
Kentucky had a 35-10 lead in the second quarter of their Week 1 game only to completely fall apart and inevitably lose. The Wildcats were outclassed in the second half in that game by being outscored 27-0 while outgained 261-22 in yardage.
