Florida Waxes Kentucky 38-0, First SEC Shutout Since 2001
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators continued their mastery over the Kentucky Wildcats, beating the team from Lexington for the 26th straight time.
Florida was led by a defense that created a season-high three turnovers, all interceptions in the second quarter, on the way to a 38-0 victory.
It's the first Gator shutout of an SEC opponent since the team did the same to Mississippi State back in 2001, and the first against Kentucky since the 1996 national championship season.
Trey Burton was inactive due to back spasms, but running back Mike Gillislee scored his fifth touchdown of the season dispite being limited to a season-low 56 rushing yards.
Quarterback Jeff Driskel had an uneven day, passing for 203 yards with a touchdown and an interception, his first turnover of the season.
Florida moved to 4-0 for the fourth straight year and will try and use the bye to get players injury-free before the October 6th home matchup against No. 2 LSU.
