With starting quarterback Jeff Driskel likely out with an ankle injury, the Gators are planning to adapt their offense to backup Jacoby Brissett with Wildcat quarterback Trey Burton mixed in.
Just like last year, the Florida Gators are 4-0 with a tough October slate looming. But this year they insist they are better, pointing to depth and improvement at key positions as the reasons why.
While Florida has yet to capitalize in 2012 on its dazzling tradition of blocking kicks and special teams prowess, hot-seat occupier Joker Phillips and Kentucky are bracing for the worst and hoping for the best.
For 25 consecutive seasons, Florida has known victory against Kentucky. But neither the Gators nor Wildcats are giving that any credence going into their matchup Saturday.
