The Florida Gators football team is looking to assert itself as a contender for the SEC East title.

To do that, they first have to take down the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats.

The No. 9 Gators travel to Lexington on Saturday, October 2 to take on the No. 23 Wildcats. The only loss between the teams this season came when Florida lost a thriller to No. 1 Alabama two weeks ago.

Florida (3-1) is coming off a convincing 38-14 win over Tennessee. Quarterback Emory Jones put up career highs in both rushing yards (144) and passing yards (204). Fellow dual-threat QB Anthony Richardson was held out against the Vols for what coach Dan Mullen said were cautionary reasons, and he could return Saturday

UK (4-0) is coming off a 16-10 drag-out win at South Carolina. The offense is led by Penn State transfer Will Levis, who threw for just 102 yards last week. His top target, Wan'Dale Robinson, leads the SEC in receiving yards (402), and Chris Rodriguez Jr. is the rushing leader (520). Kentucky is coached by Mark Stoops.
