How to watch Florida Gators vs. Kentucky Wildcats SEC men's basketball on TV, streaming

For the second Saturday in a row, the Gators will be facing a team called the Wildcats in a state that begins with the letter K.

This time, however, they'll be coming off the biggest win of their season — and of Todd Golden's young career as Florida head coach — after they upset No. 2 Tennessee in Gainesville Wednesday night.

UF (13-9 overall, 6-3 SEC) will try to maintain the energy that propelled them to victory as they face Kentucky (15-7, 6-3 SEC) and reigning national college player of the year Oscar Tshiebwe.

The matchup will feature two of the top big men in college hoops between Tshiebwe, who currently leads the nation in rebounds per game, and the Gators' Colin Castleton, who is tied for third in the country in blocks per game. But there figures to be a good matchup at guard too as UK's Sahvir Wheeler and Florida's Kyle Lofton, who transferred from St. Bonaventure, face off for the first time.

Florida has lost their last two games against Kentucky, but their last win in the series came on the road at Rupp Arena in February 2021.
