GATORS ALLOW 303 RUSHING YARDS IN LOSS

ABOVE VIDEO: Kentucky gets their first win over No. 25 Florida since 1986. The Wildcats racked up over 450 yards of offense. Kentucky stays undefeated early in the season.

GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA– Dan Mullen said it Monday, though it certainly wasn’t meant as prediction or premonition. Florida’s seemingly interminable winning streak over Kentucky, the Gators’ coach acknowledged, one day would end.

And it did Saturday night.

It only took 11,620 days and seven UK head coaches.

Take a bow, Mark Stoops, the one on the Wildcats’ sidelines who oversaw the end of the longest active run by one Division I and FBS opponent over another — dating to 1987 — at 31 straight games, with a 21-10 road win before a shellshocked Spurrier/Florida field crowd.

Take a bow, especially, UK quarterback Terry Wilson, who passed for 151 yards and a couple touchdowns, and added another 105 rushing on 10 attempts, part of a Cats’ offensive onslaught that finished with 454 total yards, including 303 on the ground. Tailback Benny Snell led the way with 175 rushing yards on 27 carries.
