Previewing UK's SEC opponents: Florida Gators

07/15/2014 04:00 PM

Head coach Mark Stoops and the Cats will hope to open the season 2-0 with games against UT Martin and Ohio. After that, things will likely get a bit more difficult when the team heads to Gainsville to visit the Florida Gators.

There is a bright light for UK in that these are not the Gators of old. Last season, Will Muschamp’s team went 4-8 (3-5 SEC) and were among the nation’s worst offensive teams.

Florida does get back their starting quarterback, Jeff Driskel, who played only three games in 2013. And the defense features star-talent in Dante Fowler at defensive end and Vernon Hargreaves at cornerback.

Regardless, it’s a winnable game for the Cats, at least we believe so at KSTV.
