Notable Statistic(s): Since 1967, Florida has won 35 of 40 games in this series...UK is converting about 56% of their third down conversions in Lexington...The last time the Gators lost three in a row was 1999 (FSU, Bama in Atlanta, Michigan State in Orlando).

Wow. I don't even have a joke here.

Unconfirmed Rumor About Team: Commonwealth Stadium is considering using polytrack instead of natural grass. The surface is already credited with lowering the number of Kentucky high school players from being euthanized after breaking their legs.
