The Kentucky Wildcats are 5-0, and the fifth win is the most impressive yet. Kentucky took down No. 10 Florida 20-13 on Saturday in Lexington, for the Wildcats’ second victory over the Gators in their last 35 meetings. It’s the first time Kentucky has beaten Florida at home since 1986.
Florida had 4th-and-goal in the final seconds, but Kentucky forced an incomplete pass. Wildcats fans stormed the field after the clock ran out.
