The Florida Gators' freight train express through its SEC basketball schedule didn't just hit a bump, but literally ran off the tracks in an embarrassing and humbling loss to unranked Arkansas, 80-69 in Fayetteville.
The Gators, who were riding an eight game winning streak in conference play, ran into another streaking team in the hot-shooting Razorbacks, who improved to 14-1 at home under second-year coach Mike Anderson.
For the No.2 Gators, it was their first SEC loss in 2013 and temporarily derailed any thoughts of a No.1 ranking.

The SEC regular season is only half over and the Gators still have two games with Kentucky, a road game against Missouri and a home rematch with Arkansas among its remaining conference games.
The road to an SEC Championship and Final Four appearance is not out of the question, but the Gators will need to regain their mojo.
