The once-unbeatable Florida Gators have been beaten. And, like everyone predicted, the Kentucky Wildcats will (likely) be playing for the SEC lead on Feb. 12.
Who could have foreseen the Gators losing to Arkansas on the road?
Florida was killing SEC opponents at such a rate that some expected the Gators to run the table, even though they play Missouri once and Kentucky twice to end the year.
But with a road loss, Florida is suddenly vulnerable. They are no juggernaut. Florida has three difficult road games left on their schedule: Missouri on Feb. 19, Tennessee on Feb. 26 and Kentucky on Mar. 9.
It is no guarantee that Florida loses any of those games, and they are still the obvious SEC favorite.
Kentucky now has a chance. Here's the Wildcats' blueprint for a regular season SEC title.
