- Kentucky is averaging considerably more yards through the air. The Wildcats run a two QB system with Max Smith and Jalen Whitlow.
- This will be Tyler Murphy’s first ever start at quarterback for the Gators.
- While Florida’s defense continues to be dominate, you wouldn’t know from their sacks on opposing quarterbacks. Still, the pressure and knockdowns have harassed QBs, including Worley and Peterman who threw a combined four interceptions last week.
