Kentucky tries to end losing skid to No. 14 Gators

LEXINGTON, Ky. — The challenge of playing No. 14 Florida on the road this week should shake Kentucky out of its funk.

Of course, the Wildcats could be bracing for another disappointment.

Kentucky travels to Florida for its Southeastern Conference opener trying to end a 25-game losing streak to the Gators. Florida (3-0) has scored at least 41 points in the past five meetings, including a 63-5 trouncing in 2008.

Kentucky hasn't won at Florida since 1979.

And if that isn't enough to get the Wildcats' attention, the Gators are averaging nearly 233 rushing yards per contest.

The challenges playing at Florida presents and hoping to open SEC play with a win has helped the Wildcats begin moving on from Saturday's 32-31 overtime loss to Western Kentucky.
