Following a fifth road swing in the last six weeks of play, the new No. 5 Gators return home to the Lemerand Athletic Center for their SEC home opener against the Kentucky Wildcats at 8 p.m. Wednesday for what promises to be an exciting atmosphere.

Florida (12-1, 2-0 SEC) is riding the second-longest win streak in the nation into the mid-week match against UK (9-4, 2-0 SEC). The Gators have won 12 straight after falling 3-1 to defending national champion Nebraska in their season opener. The Huskers sit just ahead of the Gators with a 27-match win streak going.

Gator fans are encouraged to wear Orange. The match will be carried live on the SEC Network and on AM-850 and 95.3-FM.
